Abstract

The capability of TiO2-Fe3O4 supported bentonite for phenol photocatalytic degradation was investigated. The raw bentonite obtained from Pacitan, Indonesia was used as porous support for synthesis of the TiO2-Fe3O4 based photocatalyst with varying ratio of TiO2 and Fe3O4. The variations TiO2-Fe3O4 of in this experiment were 2:1 and 3:1. The synthesis of the photocatalytic materials have been carried out by sol-gel method and followed by calcination. The temperatures of calcination was at 700oC. The physicochemical properties of TiO2-Fe3O4 bentonite samples were characterised by X-ray diffraction. Photocatalytic activity of the materials was evaluated by phenol photodegradation using UV light. The titania content in the materials significantly influenced the physicochemical properties and catalytic activity.
