ABSTRACT. Malachite Green is one of the most important organic dye, it contains triphenylmethane groups and it has been widely used for many industries. The hazardous dyes were rapidly act on immune and reproductive systems with carcinogenic effect of human health. Different methods were used for the hazardous removal in various industries, such as photocatalysis, biological treatment and adsorption process. The bismuth stannate nanoparticles have special properties of the hydrogen storage, biomolecule detection, gas sensors and catalysis. The bismuth stannate nanoparticles can be used for the degradation of organic pollutants and bismuth stannate is an important ternary oxide semiconductor with a wide band gap material. The composites were synthesized by a hydrothermal method, the obtained product was characterized by XRD, Raman, the morphology structure was confirmed by scanning electron microscopy and optical properties were carried out by DRS-UV-Vis spectroscopy. The excellent photocatalytic performance of the catalyst was evaluated by malachite green under the visible light.
Keywords: bismuth stannate, hydrothermal method, photocatalysis
