Recycling and reusing of catalyst is an important factor to produce capable and low cast catalysts. Silica coated magnetic nanoparticles (Fe3O4/SiO2) were synthesized via a simple sol-gel method with the aid of sonication. Fe3O4 nanoparticles. After that a layer of TiO2 was constricted by hydrolyze and condensation of Teteranormalbuthyltitanate to produce Fe3O4/SiO2/TiO2 nanocompsite. As-synthesized nanparticles were characterized with X-Ray powder Diffraction, Fourier-Transform-Infrarotspektrometer, Transition Electron Microscopy and Scanning Electron Microscopy. In this study, a new kind of Fe3O4/SiO2/TiO2 photocatalyst was prepared with the purpose of using light and inhibiting the recombination of electrons and holes. In situ treatment of Rhdamine B in water was performed using this Fe3O4/SiO2/TiO2 photocatalyst. The purpose of this research was to provide a new method and the basic data for the removal of organic pollutants in water. Fe3O4/SiO2/TiO2 nanocomposite showed enhanced photocatalytic properties as evidenced by the enhanced photodegradation of Rhodamine B under ultra violet light irradiation.
