Nanostructured materials, such as: Ag2MoO4 and ZnO are of great importance because they have unique characteristics and properties, and can be applied in sensors, catalysis, photoluminescence, among other applications. In this work, the Ag2MoO4 and ZnO powders were synthesized separately and in the form of heterostructures, by two different routes, coprecipitation (CP), at room temperature and coprecipitation with subsequent microwave assisted hydrothermal treatment (CPMAHT), at 130 ° C for 30 min, with a heating rate of 10 ° C / min. The heterostructures composed of both materials, Ag2MoO4 and ZnO present in molar proportions ranging from 0.25-2.00%, were synthesized by coprecipitation with subsequent sonochemical processing (CPSP). The Ag2MoO4 samples were obtained with pure cubic phase of spinel type with crystallite size of 143 nm for the sample obtained by CP and 90 nm for the sample obtained by CPTHAM. For the ZnO the hexagonal phase of the wurtzite type, with crystallite sizes of 19 and 49 nm, was obtained for the samples obtained by CP and CPTHAM, respectively. The phases of both Ag2MoO4 and ZnO were observed for the heterostructures obtained by CPSP. The structural and morphological characterization of the obtained materials was performed using X-ray diffraction (XRD) techniques and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The diffusion reflectance UV-Vis spectroscopy (DRS) was performed to determine the band gap values of the materials. The photoluminescent property was investigated by means of the photoluminescence spectroscopy (PHS) technique, with an improvement in the photoluminescent property of broadband for all the obtained heterostructures. It was also observed that the synergism of the Ag2MoO4 and ZnO materials in the heterostructures resulted in an improvement in the photocatalytic property, leading to a 90% discoloration of the rhodamine B dye in 90 min for the photocatalysis using the Ag2MoO4: 2 ZnO heterostructure.
