Abstract
Nano Co doped TiO2 prepared by simple impregnation method and characterized by powder XRD, high resolution scanning electron micrograph, diffuse reflectance spectroscopy, photoluminescence spectroscopy and infra-red spectroscopy. DRS reveal that the absorption of TiO2 wavelength is shifted to visible region when Co2+ ion doped. PL spectra show that the emission of light is higher and the liberation of iodine is more for Co doped TiO2 than TiO2. Application of this catalyst is degradation of MB dye under visible light.
