Abstract: In this study, ZnO / Zeolite Y composites were synthesized by the SSD method and were used to investigate their photocatalytic performance in NH4 + / NH3 removal from the aqueous solution. FT-IR spectroscopy, UV-VIS spectroscopy, SEM and EDX analyzes were applied to characterize these composites. A set of experiments was performed under conditions such as a solution pH (3-11), a ZnO loading (10-50 wt%), and a pollutant concentration (25-315 mg / L). About 65% of NH4 + / NH3 removal percent was achieved at optimal conditions (pH (11), ZnO loading (30 wt%) and NH4 + / NH3 concentration (170 mg / L)).
