Abstract

δ- and β-Bi2O3 thin films can be deposited by AACVD from a Bi(O2CNPri2)3 precursor, with temperature and temporal control over the deposition process. Thin δ-Bi2O3 films show good catalytic activity toward the photodegradation of methylene blue, while β-Bi2O3 nanowires are less active because of an increased hydrophobicity. Controlled hydrolysis of Bi(O2CNPri2)3 affords the novel oxo-cluster Bi8(O)6(O2CNPri2)12.
