Synthesis of Cu₂O nanospheres decorated with TiO₂ nanoislands, their enhanced photoactivity and stability under visible light illumination, and their post-illumination catalytic memory.


A novel Cu2O/TiO2 composite photocatalyst structure of Cu2O nanospheres decorated with TiO2 nanoislands were synthesized by a facile hydrolyzation reaction followed by a solvent-thermal process. In this Cu2O/TiO2 composite photocatalyst, Cu2O served as the main visible light absorber, while TiO2 nanoislands formed heterojunctions of good contact with Cu2O… (More)
