Synthesis, characterization and visible light photocatalytic activity of Mg2+ and Zr4+ co-doped TiO2 nanomaterial for degradation of methylene blue

Mg2+ and Zr4+ co-doped TiO2 was synthesized by sol–gel method. Catalysts were characterized by XRD, UV–vis DRS, SEM-EDX, TEM, BET, XPS and FT-IR to evaluate the crystal patterns and crystallite size (5.07–18.9 nm), bandgap energy, morphology, surface area, surface composition with oxidation states a...
