Photocatalytic activity of low band gap hydrogenated HfO2 doped TiO2 (H-HfO2/TiO2), HfO2 doped TiO2 (HfO2/TiO2) and TiO2 (pristine) were investigated by photocatalytic degradation of five different industrial dyes. The current study envisages the effect of doping hydrogen and HfO2 up on TiO2 for photocatalytic degradation of different chemically structured dyes. Methylene Blue attains fast degradation efficiency of 90%, within 10 min of the reaction due to high photocatalytic adsorption and degradation over the rough TiO2 surface. Effect of pH on dye degradation is observed, leading to disintegration and mineralization. © 2018
