TiO2-Fe3O4–Bentonite photocatalytic material has been developed to inactivate of Escherichia coli. The photocatalytic inactivation of Escherichia coli was conducted in a reactor under ultraviolet (325 nm) exposing. The photocatalytic degradation was observed for 5 hours to determine the optimum initial bacteria concentration, intensity of UV light and also photocatalyst concentration. The inactivation kinetic was approached by Chick-Watson and Hom kinetic models. The colonies calculations were conducted by Total Plate Count. The optimum condition was achieved for 300 minutes process to reach 7 bacterial log reduction units for an average bacterial inoculum size of 3.8 × 104 CFU/ml. The inactivation kinetics of Escherichia coli using TiO2-Fe3O4-Bentonite photocatalytic material system satisfactorily obeyed the Hom kinetic model.
