We studied the photodegradation of omeprazole using Eu2O3-TiO2 as catalyst. The catalyst was synthesized by sol-gel process. The results of photocatalytic activity indicate that the organic compound is relatively easily degraded in a very short period of time. However, the compound is not a rapidly mineralized.
