Article Preview

A comprehensive analysis of structural-reactivity relations on TiO2 nanocrystals is presented. Using an interplay between TEM, X-ray diffraction and vibrational spectroscopy of well-defined anatase and rutile TiO2 nanocrystals correlations between the adsorbate structure of formic acid and the corresponding photo-induced decomposition rate are described. It is demonstrated that the detailed bonding configuration determines the decomposition rate. Generalizations and implications of the findings are discussed.
