Magnetic heterogeneous Fe3O4/TiO2/CuO catalyst were synthesized using sol-gel method. The molar ratio of Fe3O4/TiO2/CuO were varied from 1:1:0.1 until 1:1:5. The all synthesized catalyst were characterized using X-ray Diffraction (XRD), Energy Dispersive X-ray (EDX), Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope (FE-SEM), and Vibrating Sample Magnetometer (VSM). The result show that the magnetic heterogeneous Fe3O4/TiO2/CuO catalyst exhibit ferromagnetic behavior under room temperature. The catalytic performance were evaluated on the degradation of methylene blue under UV light and combination of ultrasound and UV-light Irradiation. The combination of ultrasound and UV-light irradiation exhibit batter catalytic performance than ultrasound irradiation only. The Magnetic heterogeneous Fe3O4/TiO2/CuO with molar ratio 1:1:0.1 shows highest catalytic performance. The reusability of catalyst were also observed.
