    Abstract: Dye sensitized semiconductor can constitute efficient photochemical systems for the environmental remediation. Using metal free phthalocyanines (H2Pc) and metallophthalocyanine (MPc) complexes, has attracted much interest owing to its high stability, visible light photosensitivity and catalytic properties. Phthalocyanine sensitized titaniumdioxide ... Show More

    Abstract: In this study, the nano rods of molybdenum oxide were prepared by the thermo chemical method. The prepared molybdenum oxide nano rods were characterized by UV-Visible spectrophotometer, band gap energy, FT-IR spectrophotometer, XRD, SEM, and TEM techniques. The prepared molybdenum oxide nano rods were used for anti bacterial activity. The XRD analy... Show More
