Abstract

The photocatalytic degradation of textile effluent using hydrothermally synthesised titania supported molybdenum oxide photocatalyst at 200 degrees C with an autogenous pressure and experimental duration of 24 h has been reported. A control over the particle size, morphology and crystallinity of the photocatalyst has been studied with respect to the experimental parameters such as nutrient composition, solvent, pH, experimental duration, temperature and pressure. The products synthesised were characterised using XRD, SEM, FTIR, etc. The photodegradation of textile effluent using these composite was investigated under both solar and ultraviolet irradiation. The degradation of textile effluent was checked by the following parameters: chemical oxygen demand (COD), percentage transmission (%T), irradiation time and duration. The preliminary results are highly encouraging and further work is being carried out for the use of these photocatalytic compounds for other organic decomposition.
