Author(s): Rakshit Ameta, Daksha Sharma and Mamta Ordia

Many of the researchers have used different methods for degradation of organic pollutants from effluents of various industries. Out of which, photocatalysis; a part of advanced oxidation technology is considered as a promising technology for waste water treatment. Azure B dye has been degraded using Well-dowson polyoxometalate, as a photocatalyst. Various rate affecting parameters have been studied. The degradation rate monitored spectrophotometrically, On the basis of observed data, a tentative mechanism has been proposed. The kinetic study of this system shows that this reaction follows pseudo-first order kinetics
