Use of highly dye doped nano composite for organic pollutant degradation.
One-pot synthesis of titanium nano-particles were carried out in the presence of N719 dye.
High dye doping and exceptional dye degradation efficiency was observed. Within 25 min, 99 per cent of methylene blue was removed from waste water.
A novel one-pot synthesis of the composite was introduced.
The authors would like to appreciate the financial support extended by the National Science Foundation, Sri Lanka (Grant No: NSF/RG/2016/05). Also the support extended by Dr Torben Daeneke, RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia to carryout XPS analysis at his facility.
