Abstract: Carbon-doped zinc oxide (C-ZnO) was prepared by hydrothermal synthesis using nanocellulose (CNF) as an inducing agent. C-ZnO was characterized by XRD, FT-IR, SEM and DRS. The photocatalytic degradation of tetracycline by C-ZnO was investigated. It was found that nanocellulose-induced ZnO had good dispersibility, reduced grain size and carbon doping with narrow band gap. Compared with ordinary zinc oxide, C-ZnO didn't affect the physical adsorption of tetracycline. But it had faster degradation rate of tetracycline in the photocatalytic process. When the hydrothermal temperature of C-ZnO was 200℃, n(Zn2+):n(OH-) was 1:4 and the mass ratio of zinc nitrate to nanocellulose was 100:1, the removal of tetracycline was up to 96.1% with 120 min light irradiation.

Key words: zinc oxide, nanocellulose, carbon doping, photocatalysis, tetracycline
