A visible-light responsive C-doped TiO2 has been synthesized via sol–gel precipitation method, with different percentage of carbon dopant. The photocatalytic activity of carbon doped TiO2 was evaluated by using monochrotophos as a model pollutant. The photocatalytic performance of the prepared photocatalysts was compared with the activity of pure TiO2 under VIS irradiation. The carbon doped catalyst shows higher activity than the pure under visible light irradiation.
