TiO2@MCM-41 photo catalyst was prepared by loading different amounts of titania onto MCM-41 by cocondensation method using P-25 as titania source. The synthesized materials were characterized by UV-vis diffused reflectance spectra (UV-DRS), Fourier Transform Infrared spectra (FTIR), powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD) and BET surface area. The spectral analysis revealed the monolayer, tetrahedral coordination of anatase phase of titania particles on the walls of MCM-41 by Si–O–Ti bonds. The photo catalytic activity of TiO2-MCM-41 for reduction of aqueous Cr(VI) with varying titania loading, time course and pH were performed under solar radiation. The experimental results indicated (15)TiO2-MCM-41 to be the most efficient one with 99.2% reduction at Cr(VI) concentration of 400 mg/L, pH value of 1.0 and temperature at 35 °C. The kinetics of photo-reduction of Cr(VI) by TiO2-MCM-41 was found to be of first-order. The stability and reusability of the prepared TiO2-MCM-41 photo catalyst was also verified.
