Resumen

The ZnSe/ZnO heterostructures were synthesized with the microwave-assisted hydrothermal method, using zinc acetate and zinc nitrate as a source of Zn2+ ions. Materials were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), X-ray photoemitted electron spectroscopy (XPS), Raman spectroscopy, and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The incorporation of ZnSe into the ZnO matrix produced changes both in the size of the ZnO crystallites and in the lattice parameters. Optical and texture analyses revealed that ZnSe particles cause a decrease in gap energy and a greater than 90% increase in the specific surface area of ZnSe/ZnO heterostructures compared to bare ZnO particles. ZnSe/ZnO heterostructures synthesized using zinc acetate as a Zn ion source exhibited better photocatalytic performance in visible light compared to pure ZnO.
