Near infrared photocatalyst based on TiO2-coated gold nanoparticles
Nanoparticles such as gold nanospheres, nanorods and nanostars are a promising additive to titanium dioxide (TiO2) to increase photocatalytic efficiency. However, conventional TiO2-nanoparticles drive photocatalytic reaction only by UV light. There is a need for materials with enhanced photocatalytic capacity under visible or infrared...
