CdS/Titanate nanotubes (TNTs) were successfully synthesised by a simple, rapid, and reliable microwave hydrothermal method. The CdS nanoparticles synthesised using a 140-W microwave irradiation power at 423 K photodegraded 26% ammonia in water, while the photocatalytic efficiency increased to 52.3% using the synthesised CdS/TNTs composites. The results indicated that the CdS/TNTs photocatalysts possess improved photocatalytic activity than that of CdS or TNTs materials alone.
