In this study a visible light active nitrogen doped nanostructure titanium dioxide was synthesized by a simple mixing of Degussa P25 and Urea powder and further thermal treatment under the adequate conditions. Photocatalytic activity of produced nanoparticles was verified by providing of photocatalytic degradation of phenol aqueous solution. Mainly this work was focused on the investigation of the following effects: urea concentration, temperature treatment, catalyst loading and initial phenol concentration. Kinetics study was also carried out. The approach appears to be successful and may be applied for example during the photocatalytic treatment of wastewater streams without or with a limited aid of UV lamps.
