Titanium Dioxide Photocatalysts: Performance Related Properties
The present work considers the performance-related properties of TiO2-based photosensitive semiconductors as photocatalysts for water purification and photoelectrodes for water splitting. These properties, including electronic structure, charge transport, surface properties, and near-tosurface properties, have an effect on light absorption and its conversion into chemical energy, and are closely related to defect disorder. Therefore, defect chemistry may be used as a framework for their modification in order to achieve enhanced performance. The present work considers the relationships between these specific performance-related properties and defect disorder.
