Room temperature synthesis of mesoporous zinc oxide has been developed for four well-known ZnO. In this work, degradation of the dye model molecule performed with a mesoporous zinc oxide catalyst that compared by uncalcined zinc oxide. The mild temperature can be applied as an efﬁcient tool to decrease the microporous character of the material. Mesoporous zinc oxide before and after calcination could be completely performed degradation of MB as the model dye by 20 mg of catalyst. The obtained results indicated that the conversions of MB achieve 98% after 15 min in ambient temperature.
