Abstract

Various weight percentages of natural zeolite (10 % - 40 %) had been coupled into Fe-doped ZnO (Fe:ZnO) nanoparticles using the co-precipitation method. The photocatalytic acivity of Fe:ZnO/Zeolites nanocomposites was monitored under UV light irradiation in decoloring methylene blue and methyl orange. The result shows that certain amount of natural zeolite in Fe:ZnO could increase the photocatalytic activity of the nanocomposites. The synthesized samples were characterized using some measurements such as Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), X-ray diffraction (XRD), and Brunauer-Emment-Tellet (BET) surface area analysis. The FTIR spectra of the samples show the existance of zeolites in the samples. XRD patterns show that no crystal structure changes in ZnO after doping with Fe and supported with zeolites.
