Author(s): Kavita Ameta, Anugya Porwal, K. L. Ameta and Suresh C. Ameta

The photocatalytic degradation of Methylene blue has been studied in the presence of lead chromate as a photocatalyst. The effect of different parameters like pH, concentration of Methylene blue, amount of lead chromate and light intensity on the rate of degradation was observed. A tentative mechanism for this reaction has been proposed involving oxidation by hydroperoxyl radical.
