Magnetic polyoxometalate nanohybrid was prepared by the surface modification of γ-Fe2O3/SrCO3 nanoparticles with PW12O40 3 − polyoxometalate (POM) anions. The results of Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) and energydispersive X-ray (EDX) confirm the presence of POM on the surface of γ-Fe2O3/SrCO3 nanoparticles. TEM results revealed the ellipsoid-like structure of nanohybrid which was 23 nm in length and 6 nm in width. The activity of the photocatalyst was investigated by the photocatalytic degradation of ibuprofen (IBP) in an aqueous solution under solar light. It was found that in comparison with the γ-Fe2O3/SrCO3, the degradation of IBP after 2-h exposure to the solar light irradiation was significantly higher for POM-γ-Fe2O3/SrCO3 nanohybrids. The degradation of IBP was enhanced by the addition of H2O2 to the air saturated solution, while the addition of NaHCO3 and isopropanol restricted the degradation process. In the presence of H2O2, the Fenton photocatalyst degradation under solar light irradiation led to relatively complete degradation of IBP. Furthermore, the photocatalytic activity and magnetization properties of this magnetic photocatalyst nanohybrid provide a promising solution for the degradation of water pollutants and photocatalyst recovery.
