Background: Organic synthesis, under environment-friendly circumstances, has a great impact on sustainable development. In this perspective, visible light photocatalysis has emerged as a green model, as this offers an energy-efficient pathway towards organic conversion. Light has been used as an energy source in this study, which is also a green approach to a sustainable environment.
Methods: An investigation of the effects of various physical parameters, like the amount of complex, catalyst dose, and varying polarity of solvent methanol-benzene, on the photocatalytic degradation of surfactant as copper (II) mustard 2-amino 6-methyl benzothiazole complex has been carried out under the UV-visible light source. Biocidal activities of Staphylococcus aureus have also been studied in this work.
Results: The rate of percent degradation has been found to increase with an increase in the range of parameters.
Conclusion: This study provides a deeper experimental knowledge of the photocatalysis processes as well as microbial activities of the copper (II) mustard 2-amino 6-methyl benzothiazole complex. This article deals with advances in photocatalytic methods under non-aqueous media over the past few years.
