A new phase of titanium phosphate with a highly organized porous framework has been synthesized by a non-thermal digestion method. FTIR, TGA-DTA, XRD and SEM have been employed to study the primary product, calcined and digested materials. Pore diameters in the range of 22-90 have been obtained for the digested material as determined by nitrogen absorption measurements. Quantitative removal of copper(II) phthalocyanine and its derivative from aqueous medium have been achieved.

Keywords: Mesopore, Ordered titanium phosphate, Copper(II) phthalocyanine removal
