Role of photoexcited electrons in hydrogen evolution from platinum co-catalysts loaded on anatase TiO2: a first-principles study

The mechanism of photocatalytic reactions that occur at platinum co-catalysts loaded on TiO2 is not well understood at the atomic scale. The photoexcited electrons that are generated in TiO2 should

Local ordering and electronic signatures of submonolayer water on anatase TiO2(101).

The present combined experimental and theoretical study gives atomic-scale insights into the adsorption of water on anatase (101), the most frequently exposed surface of this TiO(2) polymorph.

Structural feature and catalytic performance of Cu species distributed over TiO2 nanotubes.

Extended X-ray absorption fine structure investigations of these catalysts reflected higher degrees of CuO dispersion and Cu2+ dissolution into the TiO2 lattice for the tubular Cu/TiO2 catalysts.

Steps on anatase TiO2(101)

Scanning tunnelling microscopy measurements of step-edge configurations and the contrast in atomically resolved images agree remarkably well with the theoretical predictions, and a trend that is expected to generally hold for metal oxide surfaces is determined.
