© 2020 Elsevier Inc.Climate change, global warming, and population growth have led researchers to use eco-sociable procedures for the N2 reduction reaction. It has discovered that N2 molecule can be transformed into NH3 in ambient circumstances with nanocomposites upon visible irradiation. In this research paper, a new visible-light-driven photocatalyst was constructed, with various weight percents of FeOCl particles (10, 20, 30, and 40%) that have adhered on NS-CN. Subsequently, multiple features of the nanocomposites were assayed in detail. The results illustrated that the NS-CN/FeOCl (20%) system has remarkable photoactivity in the NH4+ production reaction in comparison with the NS-CN and CN, which showed 2.5 and 8.6 higher activity, respectively. The durability of NS-CN/FeOCl (20%) system, as a substantial factor, was assayed for 5 recycles. Moreover, the effect of electron quenchers, pH of media, and solvent was studied. At last, a feasible Z-scheme mechanism for the remarkable improvement of N2 fixation efficiency was offered.
