A tetragonal zircon type cerium vanadate (CeVO4) photocatalyst was successfully synthesized hydrothermal method using Ce(NH4)2(NO3)6 and NH4VO3. The products were characterized using the FT-IR, XRD, FE-SEM and UV-DRS. The XRD results show that crystallite size of cerium vanadate is 27.2 nm. The effect of operational parameters such as effect of pH, catalyst suspension, initial dye concentration and reusability were observed. Hence the catalyst can be reused for continuous treatment of wastewater.
