The TiO2 and Ag and Zn doped TiO2 nanoparticles were synthesized by sol-gel method.The sol-gel method is one of the versatile method to prepare doped and co-doped nanoparticles. sol gel method has emerged as simpler and better option than physical and chemical procedures as it is fast, clean and eco-friendly alternative that does not involve any costly instruments .Synthesis of doped and co-doped nanoparticles having good photocatalytic activity have great potential for the degradation of dye. We have tried to develop new effective antimicrobial reagents with good photocatalytic activities which are not resistant to disease causing microbes.
