This study is devoted to the evaluation of the influence of phosphate dopants on the reactivity of Nb2O5-based nanomaterials in the combined catalytic activation of H2O2 and the elimination of methylene blue (MB) from an aqueous solution via adsorption and chemical degradation. For this purpose, several niobia-based catalysts doped with various amounts of phosphate were prepared by a facile hydrothermal method and subsequent calcination. Phosphate doping was shown to strongly enhance the ability of Nb2O5 to activate H2O2, as well as to adsorb and degrade MB. The most pronounced differences in the reactivity of the parent Nb2O5 and phosphate-doped samples were observed under strongly acidic conditions (pH ~ 2.4), at which the most active modified catalysts (Nb/P molar ratio = 5/1) was approximately 6 times more efficient in the removal of MB. The observed enhancement of reactivity was attributed to the increased generation of singlet oxygen 1O2, which was identified as the main oxidizing agent responsible for efficient degradation of MB. To our knowledge, it is the first report revealing that phosphate doping of Nb2O5 resulted in an improved activity of niobia in the adsorption and degradation of organic pollutants
