Acridine Orange, Calcium Silicate, Characterization, Dyes, Degradation, Nanoparticles, Victoria Blue B



Calcium Silicate nanoparticle was prepared using available calcium nitrate, silica fumes and fuel urea by solution combustion method. The prepared nanoparticles were characterized by XRD, SEM-EDAX, TEM and UV-Vis absorbance spectroscopy. The results of XRD revealed the presence of orthorhombic structure. The average size of prepared nanoparticles was found to be 13nm and the particle size less than 48nm confirmed by TEM. The optical band gap was found to be 4.6eV. The degradation efficacy was successfully examined for acridine orange and victoria blue B dye under sunlight. The degradation efficacy was achieved at 98.33% for acridine orange dye and 97.63% for victoria blue B dye in acidic pH.
