The reaction parameters were varied in the degradation of methylorange (MO) for attaining best conditions for photocatalysis.
Thus, the maximum decolorization rate of methylorange solution reaches 90% after degradation for 180 min in a suitable film thickness of 400 nm or so, while the maximum decolorization rate of pure ZnO films is only 48% (curve labeled as "d" in Figure 3).
The photocatalytic activities of the samples were evaluated by the degradation of methylorange (MO) in a cylindrical quartz vessel in response to visible light at room temperature.
