TiO2 photocatalyst were obtained from the hydrolysis product of TiOSO4 with ammonia and the photocatalytic activities were investigated by the photocatalytic degradation of methyl orange aqueous solution under UV-light and visible-light. The results showed that the absorption intensity in visible-light was dependent on the concentration of the materials, pH value and heat-treatment temperature. The color of the TiO2 varied from yellowish to vivid yellow when the TiO2 was calcined at different temperatures from 300°C to 500°C for 1h. The photocatalytic activity of TiO2 under visible light was determined by the photo-absorption feature in visible light region, which was related to the heattreatment temperature. The TiO2 calcined at 400°C shows stronger photo-absorption in visible light region and exhibits higher visible-light activity than the TiO2 calcined at other temperature.
