A TiO2-nanotube-array-based photocatalytic fuel cell using refractory organic compounds as substrates for electricity generation.

Abstract

A TiO(2)-nanotube-array-based photocatalytic fuel cell system was established for generation of electricity from various refractory organic compounds and simultaneous wastewater treatment. The present system can respond to visible light and produce obviously enhanced cell performance when a narrow band-gap semiconductor (i.e. Cu(2)O and CdS) was combined with TiO(2) nanotubes.
