Author(s): Kavita Ranawat, Dipti Soni and Sanyogita Sharma

In the present work, stannic oxide has been used as a photocatalyst to degrade basic fuchsin. The nanophotocatalysts pure SnO2 and N-doped SnO2 were prepared by precipitation method. The effect of variation of different parameters like pH, concentration of basic fuchsin, amount of photocatalyst, dopant percentage and light intensity on the rate of photocatalytic degradation was also observed
