A simple chemical precipitation route was utilized for the synthesis of ZnO nanoparticles (NPs), CdS NPs and ZnO–CdS nanocomposites (NCs). The synthesized nanostructures were examined for the crystal structure, morphology, optical properties and photodegradation activity of rhodamine B (RhB) dye. The ZnO–CdS NCs showed a mixed phase of hexagonal wurtzite structure for both ZnO NPs and CdS NPs. Pure ZnO NPs and CdS NPs possessed bandgaps of 3.2617 and 2.5261 eV, respectively. On the other hand, the composite nanostructures displayed a more narrow bandgap of 2.9796 eV than pure ZnO NPs. When compared to bare ZnO NPs, the PL intensity of near-band-edge emission at 381 nm was practically suppressed, suggesting a lower rate of photogenerated electron–hole (e−/h+) pairs recombination, resulting in enhanced photocatalytic activity. Under solar light, the composite nanostructures displayed a photodegradation efficiency of 98.16% towards of RhB dye. After four trials, the structural stability of ZnO–CdS NCs was verified.

The C-O functional group decorated ZnO nanoparticles with high UV absorption and VIS/NIR reflectance were synthesized by a simple wet chemistry method using various chelating agents. This study attempts to explore the internal mechanism of the piezoelectric catalytic activity, photocatalytic activity and adsorption performance of ZnO nanoparticles. The phase purity, particle size, optical band gap and photocatalytic activity of ZnO nanoparticles showed strong chelating agent - dependent behavior. The ZnO nanoparticles prepared by using EDTA as a chelating agent exhibits smallest particle size, highest photocatalytic activity for the degradation of methyl orange, methylene blue and rhodamine B, high adsorption capacity for the adsorption of Congo red and high vibration-catalytic performance for the vibration degradation of rhodamine B. The synergies mechanism among piezoelectric catalysis, photocatalysis and adsorption capacity of ZnO nanoparticles are discussed on the basis of the experimental results.
