Abstract
In this work, polyethylene glycol-6000 (PEG-6000) capped ZnO nanoparticles (NPs) were synthesized by doping with varying levels of Mn (0, 1, 2, 3, and 4 wt%; 0% implies no doping). The crystalline sizes of the hexagonal wurtzite-structured nanoparticles, when measured with 4% Mn doping and without doping (0%), were 30 and 28 nm, respectively. The Mn doping led to a shift of the ZnO optical band gap from 3.36 to 3.51 eV. The Mn2+ ions from the doping agent caused tail states in the absorbance spectrum of ZnO NPs, allowing them to be used as effectual UV photocatalysts for the degradation of organic contaminants (e.g., methyl orange (MO), methylene blue (MB), and congo red (CR)). This effect was optimized when doped with 4% Mn. If the effect of Mn doping is compared between 0 and 4% results, the degradation efficiency of the three contaminants was approximated as 87/93.5 (MO), 85/88 (MB), and 86/93 (CR)%, respectively. Accordingly, Mn doping on ZnO NPs was found to be distinctive enough to enhance their photo-degradation efficiency.
