To improve the catalyst properties of TiO under visible light irradiation, chitin-modified TiO was synthesized via a hydrothermal method on the surface of carbon fibers. The microstructure and interface properties of the so-prepared photocatalyst were investigated via X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and UV-visible diffuse reflectance spectroscopy. Our results indicated that the synergetic effect of the crystal phase of TiO, carbon fiber, and chitin is the main reason leading to the improvement of the photocatalytic activity of the composite catalyst. The modified TiO sample with chitin content of 0.6 wt% exhibited the highest photocatalytic activity under visible light irradiation when RhB was chosen as the target degradation product. Compared to the pure TiO/carbon fiber, the sample of TiO/carbon fiber with 0.6 wt% of chitin exhibits enhanced visible light activity with an apparent rate of degradation about 2.25 times. The enhancement of the photocatalytic performance of the sample with chitin can be attributed to the relatively high adsorption capacity of the particular network structure and photosensitivity of chitin, which can effectively separate the photoelectron-hole pair recombination. Furthermore, the new composite photocatalyst shows excellent catalytic stability after multiple degradation cycles, indicating that it is a promising photocatalytic material for degrading organic pollutants in wastewater.
