Photocatalytic degradation of chlorophenol red dye by ZnO has been investigated in aqueous solution. The effects of different parameters such as pH, amount of ZnO, dye concentration and light intensity on the rate of degradation of dye solution were also studied. A tentative mechanism has also been proposed for the photocatalytic degradation of dye.
