The present study deals with the synthesis of mesoporous Fe/KIT-6 and catalyst has been successfully tested for the heterogeneous photo-Fenton degradation of organic dye solutions under direct sun light. The physicochemical properties of the catalyst were analyzed by XRD, N2 sorption studies, SEM and TEM. From the results we infer that the catalyst reveal excellent catalytic property for 97% removal of direct blue 71 within 75mins, which could be attributed to the adsorptive power of Fe/KIT-6. With the advantages of rapid degradation and efficient magnetic separation, the synthesized material could gain a potential application in wastewater treatment and organic pollutant.
