Co-Catalytic Action of Faceted Non-Noble Metal Deposits on Titania Photocatalyst for Multielectron Oxygen Reduction

In order to clarify the reason of often reported low photocatalytic activity of rutile titania compared to that of anatase titania and the sluggish kinetics for oxygen reduction of rutile titania, in

Cu-Doped TiO2: Visible Light Assisted Photocatalytic Antimicrobial Activity

Surface contamination by microbes is a major public health concern. A damp environment is one of potential sources for microbe proliferation. Smart photocatalytic coatings on building surfaces using

Applying Hydrogenation to Stabilize N-TiO2 and Enhance Its Visible Light Photocatalytic Activity

Up to now, the explanation for the origin of enhanced photocatalytic activity of N doped TiO2 (N-TiO2) with H incorporation, which is observed in experiment, is still lacking. In our work, the

Synergistic Effect of Cu,F‐Codoping of Titanium Dioxide for Multifunctional Catalytic and Photocatalytic Studies

Titanium dioxide nanomaterials with improved catalytic and photocatalytic properties through codoping with copper and fluorine are synthesized and contain optimal textural and compositional



Role of Surface/Interfacial Cu2+ Sites in the Photocatalytic Activity of Coupled CuO−TiO2 Nanocomposites

Coupled CuO−TiO2 nanocomposite photocatalysts were prepared by a deposition precipitation method and were characterized with a variety of techniques. Electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR)

Influence of Metal/Metal Ion Concentration on the Photocatalytic Activity of TiO2−Au Composite Nanoparticles

Gold-capped TiO2 nanocomposite particles have been synthesized by reducing [AuCl4]- on the surface of preformed TiO2 colloids in acetonitrile. Such semiconductor−metal nanocomposites are considered

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.

Cu-doped TiO2 systems with improved photocatalytic activity

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.
