The present work focuses on the photocatalytic degradation of methyl orange (MO) on erbium trioxide nanoparticles (inline-formulaEr2O3 NPs). In this study, inline-formulaEr2O3 nanoparticles were synthesized and fully characterized via various techniques, including X-ray diffraction, UV–visible spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy techniques. The results revealed that the photocatalytic activity of the prepared inline-formulaEr2O3 NPs was manifested in MO photodegradation. The optimum efficiency obtained was 16 %.
