A series of visible-light-driven mesoporous structured MnO(2)/TiO(2) nanocrystal photocatalysts have been synthesized through a modified sol-gel method, and the N(2) adsorption-desorption isotherm confirms that the mesoporous materials possess large pore size (up to 9.2 nm) and a narrow pore size distribution. X-ray powder diffraction (XRD) analyses and complementary x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) measurements reveal that the doping of the transition metal Mn inhibits the growth of TiO… CONTINUE READING
