PHOTOCHEMICAL DEGRADATION OF AMIDOBLACK-10B USING NICKEL HEXACYANOFERRATE (II) AS SEMICONDUCTOR
The Photocatalytic degradation of AmidoBlack-10B is studied using Nickel hexacyanoferrate (II) as semiconductor under visible light irradiation. The rate of Photocatalytic degradation of dye was observed spectrophotometrically. The effects of variation of different parameters like pH, concentration of dye, amount of semiconductor and light intensity, on the rate of photochemical degradation has also been observed. The rate of degradation of dye Amidoblack-10B was found to follow pseudo first order kinetics and optimum conditions for the degradation of this dye are obtained. The tentative mechanism for photocatalytic degradation of AmidoBlack-10B has been proposed.
