It was found that the photoelectrochemical performance and photocatalytic activity of rod-type TiO2 electrodes were affected by various post-calcination treatments, for example, calcination in NH3 or under vacuum.

Abstract

It was found that the photoelectrochemical performance and photocatalytic activity of rod-type TiO2 electrodes were affected by various post-calcination treatments, for example, calcination in NH3 or under vacuum. Post-calcination treatment in NH3 at 773 K was particularly effective in increasing the photoelectrochemical performance and photocatalytic activity of rod-type TiO2 electrodes. A unique photoelectrochemical circuit was constructed by connecting a rod-type TiO2 electrode to a Pt electrode through a silicon solar cell in which the negative bias was applied on the rod-type TiO2 electrode. It was found that the photoelectrochemical circuit can effectively oxidize ethanethiol in water into CO2.
