Surface modification of TiO2 powders with lanthanide salts (EuCl3 or YbCl3) enhanced photocatalytic decomposition of ATP. In comparison with the unmodified catalyst, a 3-fold increase in the ATP decay rate was observed with TiO2 powders as prepared in 5 mM EuCl3 (or YbCl3) solution. The reason was ascribed to enrichment of ATP to TiO2 powder with the lanthanide ions. Evidence was obtained by adsorption experiments where ATP concentration was monitored after dispersing TiO2 powders into the solution. The ATP molecules adsorbed faster to TiO2 powder and strongly stabilized there in the presence of Yb3+ than otherwise.
