These nanostructures were characterized by FESEM, HRTEM, XRD, FTIR, XPS, and TGA, and their suitability for multifunctional environmental applications was investigated. The experimental results demonstrated that the hierarchical N-doped ZnO flowerlike nanostructure enhances the photodegradation of methyl blue (MB) and acid orange 7 (AO7) by presenting a large specific surface area and high light utilization rate, inhibits the growth of bacteria without light irradiation, and increases the permeate flux when used in a membrane filtration system. These advantages of the hierarchical N-doped ZnO flowerlike nanostructure brings benefits to the environmental application fields.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/95904
