This review paper explores the efficacy of magnesium ferrite-based catalysts in photocatalytic degradation of organic contaminates (antibiotic and dyes). We report the influence of different doping strategies, synthesis methods, and composite materials on the degradation efficiency of these pollutants. Our analysis reveals the versatile and promising nature of magnesium ferrite-based catalysts, offering the valuable insights into their practical application for restoring the environment. Due to the smaller band gap and magnetic nature of magnesium ferrite, it holds the benefit of utilising the broader spectrum of light while also being recoverable. The in-depth analysis of magnesium ferrites’ photocatalytic mechanism could lead to the development of cheap and reliable photocatalyst for the wastewater treatment. This concise review offers a thorough summary of the key advancements in this field, highlighting the pivotal role of the magnesium ferrite based photocatalysts in addressing the pressing global issue of organic pollutants in wastewater.
