The as-prepared samples were characterized by UV–DRS, PL and SEM analysis. The photocatalytic activities of the ZnS/SnS/Ag S nanocatalysts were optimized for the photodecomposition of an aqueous solution of congo red (CR) dye under sunlight. The results review that the prepared ZnS/SnS/Ag S nanocatalysts have signiﬁcantly enhanced photocatalytic activity upon exposure to visible light when compared to that of ZnS and ZnS/SnS catalysts. Moreover, the ZnS/SnS/Ag S nanocatalysts can be easily recovered and reused for photocatalytic applications under direct natural sunlight. The ZnS/SnS/Ag S nanocatalysts degrade CR dye with high efﬁciency, which will greatly promote their application in the area of environmental remediation. & Vaithilingam Selvaraj firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org Nanotech Research Lab, Department of Chemistry, University College of Engineering Villupuram (A Constituent College of Anna University, Chennai), Kakuppam, Villupuram, Tamil
