The photocatalytic degradation of 2-propanol in D2O solution under UV irradiation was investigated. The conversion yield from 2-propanol to acetone was studied by 1H-NMR measurements. The study was carried out to elucidate effects of O2 in the reaction medium and lanthanide ion modification on the TiO2 surface. Under aerobic conditions, acetone formation was clearly increased in comparison with anaerobic conditions. On the modification of TiO2 with lanthanide ion, the conversion yield decreased with the increase in the ionic radius. Yb3+ ion modification increased the acetone formation by approx. 5% in comparison with the unmodified case. Appreciably large effects of the counter ion in lanthanide salts were also observed. The role of OH˙ radical formation in the first step of photocatalysis was emphasized in the experimental results.
