Abstract. The present work focuses on the photo-catalytic degradation of methyl orange (MO) on Erbium trioxide nanoparticles Er2O3 NPs. In this study, Er2O3 nanoparticles were synthesized and fully characterized via various techniques including; XRD diffraction, UV-Vis spectroscopy and SEM techniques. The results revealed that, the photo-catalytic activity of the prepared Er2O3 NPs towards methyl orange (MB) photo-degradation was manifested. The optimum efficiency obtained was 16 %.
