Abstract: N-doped TiO2 (anatase) with high visible light photocatalytic activity was prepared by treating nanotube titanic acid (NTA) in NH3 flowat different temperatures. The crystalline structure of N-doped TiO2 determined by XRD was anatase when the treating temperature was higher than 400 ℃, however, a newphase (TiN) emerged at 700 ℃. The UV-Vis diffuse reflectance spectra (DRS) display that N-doped TiO2 has a continuous absorption at λ=400 nm. The photocatalytic activity of the N-doped TiO2 was determined by the photocatalytic oxidation of propylene under visible light irradiation. The highest photocatalytic activity was obtained for the catalyst treated at 600 ℃ in NH3 flow, which was active even under λ=500 nm, its kinetic behavior was accordant with the first order reaction formula.
