AbstractTo investigate the dual role of zeolites in enhancing photocatalytic activity, a series of selected TiO2-Zeolite hybrid photocatalytic materials have been systematically synthesized and analyzed. The synthesized samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), elemental analysis (ICPOES), N2 adsorption-desorption, diffuse reflectance UV-Vis spectroscopy (DRS), photoluminescence spectroscopy (PL), and transmission electron microscopy (STEM/HAADF/EDS). The photocatalytic activity of the samples was tested for the degradation of methyl orange (MO) and textile effluent treatments. The 10% loaded TiO2-Zeolite Y (CBV 760) yielded up to 20 times higher mass normalized turnover rate (TORm) than pristine TiO2. In the bulk system the photocatalytic degradation of 10 ppm MO was 98% in 60 min irradiation under UV light for 40 wt% TiO2 loaded mordenite and only 43 % for the pristine TiO2. The obtained enhanced photocatalytic activity of the hybrid system is attributed to surface and electronic modification of TiO2 by zeolites.
