The Nanoparticles of Zinc cobalt LDH with phosphated mesoporous titanium dioxide were prepared by precipitation method and investigated as efficient photocatalysts for anionic E124 dye degradation. Some surfactants were doped for the prepared solids for improvement of its catalytic degradation on which the photodegradation showed dye removal % reached to 100 % with adding surfactant by indirect method. Composite materials were characterized with several methods including X-ray diffraction, Raman spectroscopy, AFM and TEM, which revealed that as an application, photocatalytic degradation of anionic dye was investigated.
