Both MoO3 and V2O5 exhibit considerable absorption in the visible region as seen from their UV-visible diffuse reflectance spectra. In view of higher absorption of V2O5 compared to MoO3, the present study is tken up to see whether addition of V2O5 will improve the visible light photocatalytic activity of MoO3. 25 wt% V2O5 in MoO3 showed the highest efficiency and degraded Methyl orange, Rhodamine-B and Eosin Y completely in 30, 160 and 40 mints respectively, while Methylene blue is only partially degraded.
