The efficient and green removal of residual antibiotics in the environment is an attractive topic. In this work, four different phenyl porous organic polymers (P-POPs) photocatalysts were successfully synthesized, and a series of techniques, such as Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), nitrogen adsorption and desorption experimentation, and solid ultraviolet visible spectroscopy (UV-vis) were conducted to characterize the obtained P-POPs. Moreover, the photocatalytic property of P-POPs in the removal of tetracycline was studied, and the reaction conditions were optimized. Further study indicated that the P-POPs were also efficient for removing other antibiotics, such as chloramphenicol, in a high removal rate of 77%. Furthermore, the separation of the photocatalysts from the solution was easy, and the photocatalysts could be reused at least four times without a considerable loss in catalytic activity.
