MoS2 quantum dots (QDs) decorated NH2-MIL-125 (MoS2 QDs/NH2-MIL-125) heterostructures were successfully fabricated by a facile method. XRD results exhibit that NH2-MIL-125 and MoS2 form crystals in the synthesis process of MoS2 QDs/NH2-MIL-125 heterojunctions. TEM results demonstrated clearly that the MoS2 Quantum dots with size of about 4 nm successfully disperse on the surface of NH2-MIL-125 plate. Compared with bulk MoS2 and NH2-MIL-125, the MoS2 QDs/NH2-MIL-125 heterostructures exhibit enhanced photocatalytic performance in degradation of methyl orange under visible light irradiation, about 5.8 and 7.4 times higher that of pure bulk MoS2 and NH2-MIL-125, respectively. Meanwhile, MoS2 QDs/NH2-MIL-125 composites exhibit good stability and reusability during cycle experiment. The excellent photocatalytic activity of MoS2 QDs/NH2-MIL-125 heterostructures is attributed to the formation of heterojunctions between MoS2 QDs and NH2-MIL-125, Tacilitating separation of the photogenerated charge carries. PL results prove that MoS2 QDs/NH2-MIL-125 composites own lower recombination of photogenerated electrons and holes, resulting in superior photocatalytic ability.
