Catalysis of redox reactions by Ag@TiO2 and Fe3+-doped Ag@TiO2 core–shell type nanoparticles

Catalysis of redox reactions by Ag@TiO2 and Fe3+-doped Ag@TiO2 core–shell type nanoparticles Ag nanoparticles encapsulated by TiO2 shells have the ability to catalyze redox reactions on their surface. By continually monitoring by use of UV–visible spectroscopy it was found that the surface charge of both TiO2-coated and uncoated colloidal silver particles changed after chemical electron injection. The charging and discharging process of Ag@TiO2 vary, depending on the different Ag content of the core–shell nanoparticles. In order to enhance the stability of Ag@TiO2 colloids, Fe3+ was doped into the lattice of the TiO2 shells. The experimental results showed that the Fe3+ ions have the capacity to store and transfer electrons. Furthermore, the charging and discharging rate can be controlled by changing the thickness of the TiO2 shells, because they are limited by the diffusion distance of electrons through the TiO2 shells.
