Nanometric TiO2-ZnO compound mesoporous material was prepared by microwave irradiation self-assembled method, using ZnSO4 and TiCl4 as raw material and nanometric carbon black as template. This method utilizes the positional hindrance effect of the long chain of soluble starch in space and the separation of macromolecule network. XRD analysis shows that the precursor is amorphous which transforms to TiO2 or the mixture of TiO2 and ZnTiO3 above 500 ℃. When the Ti∶Zn molar ratio is 1, the product is ZnTiO3. TEM measurement indicates that the TiO2-ZnO is spherical particles, and the average diameter of the particles is 15~20 nm. The size of most of the pores is about 8 nm in diameter. EDS measurement indicates that the found Ti∶Zn value of the sample agrees with the original mixing ratio and the uniformity is good. The light absorption and photocatalytic experiment show that the material has the best photocatalytic reactivity when the content of Zn is 50%. After being irradiated under the sunlight for 90 min, the compound can completely degrade the blue dye. The photocatalytic reaction follows first-order kinetics.
