Author(s): Jyoti Ameta, Justin Jose, H. S. Sharma, Rakshit Ameta and V. K. Sharma

The photocatalytic degradation of alizarin red and gentian violet on CeCrO3 powder has been observed spectrophotometrically. The effects of variation of different parameters like pH, concentration, amount of semiconductor and light intensity on the rate of degradation has been observed. A tentative mechanism for the photocatalytic bleaching of alizarin red and gentian violet has been proposed.
