Title: Photocatalytic activity of BiFeO{sub 3} nanoparticles synthesized through hydrothermal method

Multiferroic BiFeO{sub 3} (BFO) nanoparticles (Nps) were synthesized using hydrothermal method. From the X-Ray diffraction analysis (XRD), the synthesized Nps were found to having rhombohedral structure with R3c space group confirmed by Rietveld analysis. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) analysis was carried out to identify the chemical bonds present in the BFO Nps. Photocatalytic properties of synthesized Nps were studied for the degradation of Methylene Blue (MB) dye under visible light of 150W.
