In this study, the Cu2MoS4/WO3 supported on chitosan was prepared by precipitation method, and applied to photocatalyst, antibacterial agent and biosensor. The presence of WO3 and Cu2MoS4 crystals were confirmed by XRD analysis. The elemental information was investigated by EDS. FTIR spectra shows the presence of chitosan in nanocomposites. The as-synthesized Cu2MoS4/WO3/Chitosan nanocomposites has a bandgap of 2.18 eV and it is effective for visible light condition. The average particle size of the Cu2MoS4/WO3/Chitosan is 71 nm. The photocatalysis activity Cu2MoS4/WO3/Chitosan was higher than Cu2MoS4 or WO3.The Cu2MoS4/WO3/Chitosan nanocomposites shows the highest efficiency (100%) in photocatalysis degradation of dye under visible light irradiation in 80 min. The •O2- plays a main role in degradation process. The as-synthesized Cu2MoS4/WO3/Chitosan nanocomposites depicted the antibacterial activity toward G+/- bacteria. Determination of enterococcus faecalis is important for human health. The DNA template was used to the Cu2MoS4/WO3/Chitosan nanocomposites and applied in detection of enterococcus faecalis by H2O2 and 3,3',5,5' -tetramethylbenzidine in peroxidase like activity. The detection limit of enterococcus faecalis by DNA-Cu2MoS4/WO3/Chitosan in peroxidase-like catalysis was about 55 CFU/mL. Therefore, the Cu2MoS4/WO3/Chitosan can be applied in the photocatalysis, bactericidal and peroxidase process. Copyright © 2021 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
