Abstract: In this work, Co(III) 5,10,15,20-tetrakis(carboxyphenyl)porphyrin was synthesized and immobilized on chitosan. The synthesized composite was characterized by FT-IR and UV-Vis and DRS spectrometers. It is expect that porphyrin act as visible light antenna and to modify the photoresponse properties of chitosan particles. Adsorption and photodegradation of methylene blue (MB) over TCPP- chitosan were systematically investigated.
