The zinc and tungsten oxides and their heterojunctions were controllably prepared by adjusting the precursor compositions using a vacuum freeze-drying technology. Owing to the introduction of a polymer in the precursor, the calcined oxide materials could maintain their three-dimensional connected porous structures. The photocatalytic experiments showed that the obtained series of materials could achieve the decolorization degradation of Rhodamine B and exhibit component-dependent photocatalytic activity. The zinc oxide/zinc tungstate three-dimensional porous heterojunctions showed higher photocatalytic activity than the other samples, which could completely decolorize Rhodamine B within 180 min.

Key words: Vacuum freeze-drying, Three-dimensional porous material, Zinc-tungsten oxide, Hetero-structure, Photocatalysis, Rhodamine B
