Driven by growing concerns for environmental and energy issues, interest in semiconductor-based heterogeneous photocatalysis has increased considerably over the last decades. Photocatalysis allows the use of sunlight for the destruction of highly toxic molecules and remediation of pollutants; for the selective, synthetically useful redox transformation of specific organic compounds; for the production of hydrogen, and the conversion of solar energy to electric power.1−12 Due to its abundance, nontoxicity, and high stability under a variety of conditions, the most widely used material in heterogeneous photocatalysis is titanium dioxide (TiO2).

Abstract

Driven by growing concerns for environmental and energy issues, interest in semiconductor-based heterogeneous photocatalysis has increased considerably over the last decades. Photocatalysis allows the use of sunlight for the destruction of highly toxic molecules and remediation of pollutants; for the selective, synthetically useful redox transformation of specific organic compounds; for the production of hydrogen, and the conversion of solar energy to electric power.1−12 Due to its abundance, nontoxicity, and high stability under a variety of conditions, the most widely used material in heterogeneous photocatalysis is titanium dioxide (TiO2).
