Here, we report a simple technique that uses mesoporous SnO2 to monitor the water quality and degrade the hazardous organic pollutants simultaneously. The technique generates hydroxyl radicals and a voltage that is hindered by the presence of hazardous organic pollutants. Pollutant as low as 1 ppb concentration level can easily be detected. The developed system not only monitors the water quality but also is capable of degrading hazardous dyes (organic pollutants) through its self-power, not relying on any external stimuli such as light, heat, radiation, and current. A simple digital laboratory multimeter is shown to be useful for the overall study. Overall, the study indicates that spectrophotometer generally used to monitor the dye concentration can be avoided.
