In this work, we design and synthesize a novel heteronanostructure with controlled relative composition, i.e., BiVO4/Bi2S3 hollow discoid-like particles with mesoporous shell. The synthesis involves a facile anion exchange process by reacting pre-synthesized BiVO4 discoid-like particles with Na2S in an aqueous solution. Benefiting from the unique structural features and the formation of heterostructure, the as-prepared BiVO4/Bi2S3 hollow discoids exhibit significantly enhanced photoelectrochemical current response and photocatalytic activity for reduction of CrVI under visible-light illumination.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/105119
