Keywords: bamboo charcoal, photocatalyst, silver, nanoparticles

A combined function of photocatalysis, antibacterial, and adsorption was introduced as a composite powder in the form of Ag/TiO2/BC. The powder was characterized by SEM, TEM, and XRD for confirmation of the obtained product. The synergetic property among the three materials in the composite was investigated in several approaches, e.g, dye removal, photodegradation, and antibacterial.
