sol–gel technique conducted to synthesize nano titanium dioxide with anthraquenone (AQ) relatively in acidic pH. Nanoparticles were characterized using techniques like, Scanning Electrion Microscope (SEM), Atomic Force Microscope (AFM), UV-Visible Spectrioscopy, X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR), SEM picture display that the TiO2/AQ is spherical in style, the band gap of TiO2/AQ nanoparticle is (3.05eV), BET and BJH analysis provides Pore volume and specific Surface area and the kinetic studie Suggest that the reaction is pseudo first order and the rate of reaction was reduce with rising initial concentration for p-Nitrotolune.
