Author(s): Bindu Kataria

Photoreduction of malachite green was monitored spectrophotometrically in presence of benzophenone. The effects of various parameters like pH, concentration of dye, concentration of benzophenone etc. has been observed. The photoreduction of dye follow pseudo-first order kinetics. A tentative mechanism for photoreduction of malachite green has been proposed.
