A visible light sensitive CuS-CdS photocatalyst was synthesized by using salts of Cu and Cd. The CuS-CdS photocatalyst was characterized using IR technique. The bleaching of solochrome blue dye was carried out in presence of semiconductor CuS-CdS photocatalyst. Effects of various parameters like amount of CuS-CdS photocatalyst, pH, dye concentration etc were studied and the rate of bleaching was observed. A tentative mechanism has been proposed.
