Abstract


Crystal form of N-TiO2/WO3 Nano-Composite material was prepared from urea, commercial TiO2 and WO3 by simple solid phase reaction followed by calcinations at a temperature of 400 °C for four hours at each step. The as-synthesized photocatalyst was characterized using XRD and Uv-Visible diffuse reflectance spectra. It was found that the absorption edge of N-TiO2/WO3 was well extended to visible light. Dark experiment has been done to know the degree of photodegradation of adsorption of PR over the studied photocatalyst under non-irradiation. The result obtained was for photocatalytic degradation of adsorbed PR was only about 6.32%. The as-synthesized photocatalyst was highly active under visible irradiation (93.87%) than under UV irradiations (75.74%). This may be due to the fact that the absorption edge of the modified TiO2 particle shifts to visible light range.

Author Keywords: Advanced oxidation processes, degradation, visible and UV radiations.
