TiO2 has been widely investigated due to its superior photocatalytic activity under ultraviolet irradiation among the photocatalyst materials. In this research, vanadium (V3+) was doped into TiO2 to enhance its light response under visible irradiation for wider application. Vanadium was introduced into TiO2 lattice at various concentration respectively 0.3, 0.5, 0.7 and 0.9% using simple and fast sonochemical method. X-Ray Diffraction data show that vanadium doped TiO2 crystallized in anatase phase with I41amd space group. X-Ray Diffraction pattern shifted to lower value of 2θ due to vanadium dopant. It indicated that V3+ was incorporated into anatase lattice. UV-Vis Diffuse Reflectance Spectra was revealed that the doped TiO2 has lowered reflectance and enhanced absorption coefficient in visible region than undoped TiO2 and commercial anatase TiO2. Band gap energy for undoped and doped TiO2 were respectively 3.22, 3.05, 2.93, 3.03 and 2.40 eV. Therefore vanadium doped TiO2 had potential to be applied under visible light.
