Disordered TiO2 nanocrystal surface yields durable, more efficient photocatalyst

By / March 18, 2011

TEM image of a Ti02 nanocrystal after hydrogenation reveals engineered disorder on the crystal’s surface, a change that enables the photocatalyst to absorb infrared light. Credit S. Mao et al; Science Express. By tinkering with the outer layer of titanium oxide nanocrystals, researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab have figured out a way to turn…
