TiO2 photocatalyst is one of the Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOPs) methods which is very potential to be applied to treat wastewater. Modification of TiO2 with the addition of ZSM-5 as supporting material can increase the adsorption capacity and conductivity of water molecules. Those properties enable TiO2/ZSM5 composites to conduct photodegradation process within dye waste. TiO2/ZSM5 composites were prepared by sol gel method. The synthesized materials were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Energy Dispersive X-ray Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM-EDX), and Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET). The effect of 2-Propanol to TiO2/ZSM-5 Composite Morphology was studied. The results from X-Ray Diffraction analysis revealed that the peak indicating the presence of anatase TiO2 on sample 2.5;5; and 10% TiO2/ZSM-5 composite. The increasing effect of Titanium precursors to TiO2/ZSM-5 composite carried out agglomerates on external surface of ZSM-5 as seen in SEM which was supported by surface area data from BET.
