In this work, we present the silver-doped P25-TiO2at low concentrations 0.1, 0.3, 0.5 and 0.7wt%.The catalytic evaluation results showed that methyl parathion (55mg / L) is degraded by more than 90% after 300 minutes of reaction under sunlight, being the most active catalyst which contained 0.3%wt of silver.
