Electrochemical Photolysis of Water at a Semiconductor Electrode
Water photolysis is investigated by exploiting the fact that water is transparent to visible light and cannot be decomposed directly, but only by radiation with wavelengths shorter than 190 nm. Expand
Titanium dioxide photocatalysis
Abstract Scientific studies on photocatalysis started about two and a half decades ago. Titanium dioxide (TiO 2 ), which is one of the most basic materials in our daily life, has emerged as anExpand
TiO2 photocatalysis and related surface phenomena
Abstract The field of photocatalysis can be traced back more than 80 years to early observations of the chalking of titania-based paints and to studies of the darkening of metal oxides in contactExpand
TiO2 Photocatalysis: A Historical Overview and Future Prospects
Photocatalysis has recently become a common word and various products using photocatalytic functions have been commercialized. Among many candidates for photocatalysts, TiO2 is almost the onlyExpand
TiO2 photocatalysis: Design and applications
Abstract TiO 2 photocatalysis is widely used in a variety of applications and products in the environmental and energy fields, including self-cleaning surfaces, air and water purification systems,Expand
Abstract Scientific studies on photocatalysis started about three decades ago. Titanium dioxide (TiO2), which is one of the most basic materials in our daily life, has emerged as an excellentExpand
Bactericidal and Detoxification Effects of TiO2 Thin Film Photocatalysts
To examine the special features of the antibacterial effect for a thin transparent titanium dioxide (TiO2) film, the photocatalytic degradation of endotoxin, which is a pyrogenic constituent ofExpand
Photocatalytic bactericidal effect of TiO2 thin films : dynamic view of the active oxygen species responsible for the effect
The role of active oxygen species in the photocatalytic bactericidal effect was investigated using a thin transparent titanium dioxide (TiO2) film. The viable number of Escherichia coli (E. coli)Expand
Light-induced amphiphilic surfaces
The ability to control the surface wettability of solid substrates is important in many situations. Here we report the photogeneration of a highly amphiphilic (both hydrophilic and oleophilic)Expand
Photoelectrocatalytic reduction of carbon dioxide in aqueous suspensions of semiconductor powders
WE report here the photoelectrocatalytic reduction of carbon dioxide to form organic compounds such as formic acid, formaldeyde, methyl alcohol and methane, in the presence of photosensitiveExpand
