Abstract: Nanotechnology is one of the most important of these technologies, whose applications are associated with lower energy consumption, and better properties. The best way to clean contaminated sites is to use a photocatalyst that is suitable for a large number of pollutants.In this study, a TiO2-Ag-TEOS-La nanocomposite was synthesized as a degradation product and photocatalyst by the sol-gel method. The samples were calcined and then XRD, FTIR, FESEM, and analyzes were used to characterize the synthesized powders. In addition, a UV-Vis was used to study the absorption of composite. The degradation and photocatalytic test of nanocomposites were investigated on methylene blue dye. The results of the experiments show us that the nanocomposite has the best performance in the role of environment and the amount of a concentration of methylene blue and finally has 88% destruction.
