The objective of this paper inferred that the reported results and discussion about photocatalytic and antimicrobial properties of the doped oxide materials by using hydrothermal method. Usually semiconducting oxide materials are TiO2, CeO2, SnO2, ZnO, AgO and ITO are called as transparent conducting oxide materials (TCO). The synthesis of high quality ZnO doped TiO2 material was analysed by many researchers by using X-ray diffraction (XRD) and confirms that crystal structure of doped composition showed hexagonal Wurtzite Structure of ZnO with lattice constants a=b=3.249 Ã¡ÂºÂ® and c=5.219 Ã¡ÂºÂ®. The applications and properties of these materials were useful to the researchers to enhance the materials properties when they have doped with one another or with polymer and metallic materials. The properties of oxide materials such as structural, morphological, optical and electrical properties were analysed. Semiconducting oxide materials have significant physical and chemical properties which are often, sharply improved by combining them in different proportions for making their alloys (or) compounds. Due to their expanding utility of both amorphous and polycrystalline semiconductor oxide materials, has attracted much interest in electronics and optoelectronics devices. The techniques involved for semiconducting oxide materials are synthesized by Electron beam evaporation, Molecular beam epitaxy and chemical process. Many researchers reported about the properties, preparation and applications of doped oxide materials. The properties of these materials play an important role in electronic and optoelectronic devices. This work gives an account detailed about the oxide materials in this evergreen topic of energy conversion research.
