Long persistent phosphor is a new and promising luminescent material, which can maintain luminescence after stopping excitation. In the past few years, long persistent phosphors with unique optical properties have been developed and their applications in the field of photocatalysis have been widely studied. Owing to the characteristic of leaving the light source, long persistent luminescence can effectively promote the photocatalytic reaction in the dark environment. Meanwhile, long persistent phosphor has an important position in the long-time catalytic system due to its long luminous life, which makes round-the-clock photocatalysis possible. In brief, long persistent phosphors have been proved to be a new functional material with unprecedented advantages in photocatalysis. In this review, we summarize the latest advances in the application of long persistent phosphors in the degradation of pollutants, sterilization, and efficient hydrogen production.

Key words: Long persistent phosphor, Photocatalysis, Application
