Photocatalytic Activity of TiO2-SNO2NANOHYBRID for Decomposition of Methyl Orange
The main aim of this study is the comparison between photocatalytic activity of the single TiO2 nanoparticles and
decorated TiO2 nanoparticles using SnO2 nanoparticles. The X-ray diffraction (XRD) pattern of the synthesized hybrid
demonstrates that the SnO2 nanoparticles can successfully are synthesized on the surface of TiO2 nanoparticles. The
photocatalytic activity investigation of samples reveals that the decomposition of methyl orange increase with respect to the
weight fraction of samples and irradiation time. Meanwhile, the results show that the photocatalytic performance of synthesize
hybrids is higher than that of single TiO2 nanoparticles.
