The photocatalysis of nanometer TiO2/Ag was modified by sodium dodecyl sulfate, and its behavior of adsorption for pesticide was investigated on the surface of catalyst. Four kinds of water-solubility preparations were prepared by using TiO2/Ag, modified TiO2/Ag by 0.5% SDS, TiO2 and nothingness as photocatalyst with dimethomorph as effective component. They were besmeared on a piece of glass, and the photocatalytic experiment was done in sunlight. Degradation rates of 1.2% dimethomorph are 71.5%, 68.0%, 45.5% and 28.3%, respectively, when it was degraded in five days. Degradation rate of 10% dimethomorph is 97.3% in eight days in sunlight and t1/2 is 2.8 d in nano-preparation, when it was sprayed on small cabbages after being diluted in rudimental experiments of toxicity for crop. The nano-preparation is of better biologic activity, the virulence of which is 1.235 times as great as original pesticide and 1.245 times as ordinary preparation under the same condition.
