Treść
Photocatalytic oxidation over suspended solid photocatalysts (e.g., titanium dioxide) has been proposed as a sustainable process for treatment and purification of water and wastewater as well as the process for photoconversion of solar energy to hydrogen, methane, and other low hydrocarbons. Solar radiation could be used to drive heterogeneous electrochemical reactions at the surface of an optically active photocatalyst (e.g., TiO2-based or non-TiO2-based), resulting in the production of solar fuels, including hydrogen via photolytic water splitting, glycerol, or biomass conversion and hydrocarbons (methane, methanol, etc.) via CO2 photoreduction. This chapter focuses on preparation and characterization of photocatalysts for solar energy conversion. Non-TiO2 and TiO2-based photocatalysts used for CO2 photoconversion, water photosplitting, as well as hydrogen production, via glycerol and biomass photoconversion, are discussed.
