Abstract

Fe3O4/CuO/ZnO nanocomposites with different molar ratio were synthesized using sol-gel method. The as-synthesized samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), UV-visible spectroscopy, BET surface area analyszer, and Electron Spin Resonance (ESR). The sonocatalytic-photocatalytic-sonophotocatalytic activity of as-synthesized samples was investigated based on methylene blue degradation. Moreover, the role of active species was investigated using scavenger technique. The results showed that hole plays an important key role in sono-photo-sonophotocatalytic degradation of methylene blue.
