Abstract

Bismuth(III) tert-butoxide [Bi((OBu)-Bu-t)(3)] was utilised as a single-source precursor to controllably deposit thin films of different phases of bismuth oxide (Bi2O3) on glass substrates via low-pressure chemical vapour deposition (LPCVD). Band gaps for the different phases have been measured (E-g = 2.3-3.0 eV) and the films displayed excellent photodegradation of water under near-UV irradiation.
