Photochemical Synthesis of SnO2 and its Photocatalytic Activity for Hydrogen Production
Here we reported SnO2 can be synthesized by irradiation of SnCl4 solution with Hg lamp in N2 atmosphere. The preparation mechanism was proposed. The as-prepared sample showed higher photocatalytic activity than TiO2 (Degussa P25) and the commercial SnO2 for hydrogen production from ethanol aqueous solution.
