Abstract  Cd0.53Zn0.47S was prepared by a coprecipitation method. Pt was loaded onto Cd0.53Zn0.47S by photodeposition method. SiO2 was deposited onto Cd0.53Zn0.47S by hydrolysis of the tetraethylorthosilicate (TEOS), and the effect of the hydrolysis pH on the activity of the catalysts was studied. The samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), BET surface area, photoluminescence (PL), UV-Vis diffusive reflectance spectroscopy (UV-Vis DRS), and scanning electron microscope (SEM) techniques. The composite SiO2 prevented effectively photocorrosion and coalescence of Pt-Cd0.53Zn0.47S nanoparticles during the photocatalytic reaction, and improved the charge separation of photogenerated electrons and holes. Therefore, the stability and the activity of Pt-Cd0.53Zn0.47S for photocatalytic hydrogen generation
under visible light irradiation were improved greatly.
