Surface Characterization and CO2 Reduction Using Electrodeposited Silver Particles over TiO2 Thin Film

Abstract:

Article Preview

TiO2 thin films supported on transparent conductive glass plates were modified by silver particles (250 nm diameter) deposited by electrochemical double pulse from an aqueous solution of silver nitrate. Selective formation of Ag particles on TiO2 surface could be seen from SEM and AFM images and topography. Rugosity and particle size analyses were performed on the modified surface. Benefits of silver particle modification are discussed based on the enhanced electrochemical reduction of carbon dioxide in aqueous solution.
