ABSTRACT:
We have explored the highly efficient and environmentally benign Fe/MCM-41 for methylene blue (MB) dye removal in aqueous solution. The synthesised mesoporous Fe/MCM-41 were characterized XRD, SEM and TEM. The concentration of MB dye removal was estimated from its optical density at ?max = 665 nm. From the results we infer that the catalyst reveal excellent catalytic property for 95% removal of MB within 75mins, which could be attributed to the adsorptive power of Fe/MCM-41. With the advantages of rapid degradation and efficient magnetic separation, the synthesized material could gain a has the potential to be used as reductant/adsorbent to remove cationic dye molecules effectively and rapidly from drinking water and large scale of industrial wastewater
