    • Abstract


      ${\alpha}$-Zirconium phosphate (${\alpha}$-ZrP) is employed as a crystalline support for CdS quantum dots. A new composite material, where CdS quantum dots of average size 2–6 nm homogeneously dispersed over ${\alpha}$-zirconium phosphate is prepared and characterized using analytical, spectroscopic, structural and microscopic studies. Chronoamperometric and electrochemical impedance studies reveal the photocatalytic characteristics of the composite material. Further, the composite showed remarkable photocatalytic activity in oxidation of benzyl alcohols with high reusability.
