Paper Title:
N-Doped TiO2 Nanotubes and its Photocatalytic Activity under UV Light
  Abstract

We review the fabrication and properties of highly ordered TiO2 nanotube arrays made by anodic oxidation of titanium in fluoride-based electrolytes. The N-doped TiO2 nanotubes were prepared by changing the composition of electrolyte. TiO2 nanotubes and N-doped TiO2 nanotubes characterized by various analytical methods, such as scanning electron microscope (SEM) and X-ray photoelectron emission spectroscopy (XPS). The photocatalytic efficiency was evaluated by the photodegradation of Methyl orange solution under UV irradiation. It has been confirmed that the recombination rate of electron-hole pairs declined significantly. The higher visible light activity is due to the codoping of nitrogen.
