InWO3-InMoO3 loaded-TiO2 nanomaterial was synthesised by co-precipitation method and sonication technique. The nanomaterial was characterized by High-resolution scanning electron microscopy (HR-SEM) with elementary dispersive X-ray (EDX), High-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HR-TEM), photoluminescence spectroscopy (PL) and UV-Vis diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (DRS). The photocatalytic activity of InWO3-InMoO3 loaded-TiO2 nanomaterial was studied from the photodegradation of methyl green (MEG) and methylene blue (MB) under UV-light irradiation at 365 nm. The hydroxyl radical formation in the mechanism was confirmed by fluorescence quenching technique. The mineralization confirmed by chemical oxygen demand measurements. A flaxisible mechanism is proposed for higher catalytic activity of InWO3-InMoO3-TiO2 under UV-light for 365 nm. This catalyst was found to be stable and reusable without appreciable loss of catalytic activity up to five cycles. The InWO3- InMoO3 loaded-TiO2 nanomaterial on MEG was high photocatalytic activity that of MB so high photocatalytic activity has been discussed by first order kinetics, rate constant value and high quantum yield. This material was showed increased hydrophobicity that of TiO2 electrochemical study and antibacterial activity of the analysis was also studied.
