In this study, supported nonmetal (boron) doping tiO2 coating photocatalysts were prepared by chemical vapor deposition (CVD) to enhance the activity under visible light irradiation and avoid the recovering of tiO2. boron atoms were successfully doped into the lattice of tiO2 through CVD, as evidenced from XPS analysis. B-doped tiO2 coating catalysts showed drastic and strong absorption in the visible light range with a red shift in the band gap transition. This novel B-tiO2 coating photocatalyst showed higher photocatalytic activity in methyl orange degradation under visible light irradiation than that of the pure tiO2 photocatalyst.
