Bi2Sn2O7, synthesized through different hydrothermal routes (the microwave hydrothermal method (MH-BSO) and the traditional hydrothermal method (TH-BSO)), was used for photocatalytic removal of arsenic from aqueous solution. The as-synthesized Bi2Sn2O7 products were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), N2 sorption-desorption, UV-Vis diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (UV-Vis DRS), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), electron spin resonance (ESR), X-ray photoelectron spectra (XPS), and electrochemistry technology. Under visible light irradiation, the MH-BSO sample exhibited a higher photocatalytic activity (up to 98.7%) than that of the TH-BSO sample during the oxidization of arsenite (AsO3)3-. The active species, O2 and hVB+, were identified as the primary active species responsible for As(Ⅲ) oxidation. In addition, a possible mechanism for the photo-oxidation of As(Ⅲ) over Bi2Sn2O7 is proposed.
