Characterization of polycrystalline TiO(2) bare or porphyrin impregnated powders, used as photocatalysts for the degradation of 4-nitrophenol (4-NP) in aqueous suspension, was performed by time-resolved microwave conductivity (TRMC) measurements and electronic paramagnetic resonance (EPR) and X-ray photoelectron (XPS) spectroscopies. The presence of(More)
The photocatalytic efficiency of TiO(2)-SiMgO(x) plates to oxidize H(2)S was first evaluated in a flat laboratory reactor with 50 mL min(-1) synthetic air containing 100 ppm H(2)S in the presence of humidity. The use of the photocatalyst-adsorbent hybrid material enhanced the photocatalytic activity in terms of pollutant conversion, selectivity, and(More)
The interest on outdoor photocatalytic materials is growing in the last years. Nevertheless, most of the experimental devices designed for the assessment of their performance operate at controlled laboratory conditions, i.e., pollutant concentration, temperature, UV irradiation, and water vapor contents, far from those of real outdoor environments. The aim(More)
Pulsed laser deposition (PLD) is proposed as promising technique for the fabrication of multilayered BiVO4-based photoanodes. For this purpose, bare BiVO4 films and two heterojunctions, BiVO4/SnO2 and BiVO4/WO3/SnO2, have been prepared using consecutive ablation of assorted targets in a single batch. The ease, high versatility and usefulness of this(More)
A critical parameter for the implementation of standard high-efficiency photovoltaic absorber materials for photoelectrochemical water splitting is its proper protection from chemical corrosion while remaining transparent and highly conductive. Atomic layer deposited (ALD) TiO2 layers fulfill material requirements while conformally protecting the underlying(More)
Recently, titanate nanotubes have attracted a significant deal of interest, but the mechanism of formation as well as some structural aspects of these materials is still under debate. In this context, the main goal of the present study is to identify the key factors affecting the morphology of the titanate nanostructures during hydrothermal synthesis in(More)
