Summary:

Pure and C-N-S tridoped TiO2 nanoparticles were synthesized by simple one-step hydrolysis process. Titanium isopropoxide and thiourea as the source materials of Ti and C-N-S. The structural and morphological analysis is carried out by XRD and SEM. Molecular confirmation is done using FTIR. Presence of elements is identified by EDS. The absorption and emission properties are studied using UV-Vis and FL. Photocatalytic activity for degradation of Rhodamine B is investigated.
