Exciton and carrier photocatalytic processes have been proved in bismuth oxyhalogen photocatalysts. But, there are no reports about how to regulate the different mechanisms to improve photocatalytic activity for different reaction. Here, we found that the photocatalytic mechanisms could be regulated by changing the assembly method of bismuth, oxygen, and halogen atoms. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) experimentals results concluded that solid solution BiOBr0.5I0.5 showed enhanced exciton photocatalytic process, and coupling 0.5BiOBr/0.5BiOI displayed improved carrier photocatalytic proces. This work promoted the understanding about solid solution and coupling for bismuth oxyhalogen.
