The motivation of our current study is to carry out photocatalytic degradation experiments of methylene blue in the presence of Fe doped MgZnO/AC (Fe:MgZnO/AC) and MgZnO/AC catalysts and thus to examine the effect of the Fe-dopant metal on the photocatalytic activity of the catalysts. In this context, both catalysts (MgZnO/AC and Fe:MgZnO/AC) are synthesized by hydrothermal technique. Structural (XRD analysis) and optical (UV-Vis) properties of the synthesized catalysts are discussed. How the Fe-dopant metal affects the crystallite size and energy band gap of the MgZnO/AC catalyst is examined and the experimental data obtained are interpreted.
