FTIR, pH,Dyes, Dosage, XRD, Concentration


Plenty and pretty applications of nano particles have gained utmost priority now a days due to their versatile flexibility in wide range of applications.. In the present research, experiments were carried out using Titanium dioxide nano particles for dyes decolourization using AntigononLeptopus leaves by Biosynthesis Process. The variables incorporated in the present study are Contact time, pH, initial Concentration of Dyes, Dosage of nano particle solution and temperature. The characterization studies were carried out using XRD and FTIR. The dyes considered for the present study are Solo Chrome Black(SCB), Titan Yellow(TY), Bromo Thymol Blue(BTB), Bromo Cresol Purple(BCP). The Optimum pH for SCB-4, TY- BTB-6 and BCP-7. The Positive Results confirmed that antigononLeptopus Leaves broth combined with Titanium dioxide solution formed Titanium Nano Particles and it is capable of removing dyes.
