Abstract

This study was focused on the application of Schiff-base metal complex as a catalyst for the photocatalytic degradation of methylene blue (MB), which was used as a model compound. The photocatalytic degradation has been considered to be an efficient process for the degradation of organic pollutants, which are present in the effluents released by industries. The photocatalytic bleaching of cationic dye methylene blue was carried out under visible irradiation using Cu(II) complex of N,N’-disalicylaldehyde-1,3-propanediimine (Salpd). Photocatalytic degradation of methylene blue was examined using various parameters such as effect of catalyst concentration, effect of dye concentration, effect of addition of H2O2, effect of different pH conditions (5, 7, 9, and 11) and effect of time of irradiation. It was found that the efficiency of decolorization process increases with increasing the concentration of H2O2 until it reached to its critical value. The results demonstrated that 60 mg/50ml of Cu-Salpd was found to be optimum dose for maximum degradation of MB. It was found that catalyst exhibited better catalytic activity for degradation at acidic pH. The time of decoloration increased with an increase in the initial dye concentration.
