Abstract

Nitrogen-doped titania was coupled with the commercial titania nanoparticles by mechanical milling in liquid medium. The as-prepared nanocomposites (TiO2/TiO2−x N y ) were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Brunauer–Emmett–Teller (BET) specific surface area, UV–Vis spectroscopy, chemiluminescence, and acetaldehyde decomposition activity techniques. When a small amount of nitrogen-doped titania was added into the commercial titania, higher intensity and longer lifetime of 1O2 was observed, and the photocatalytic activity was efficiently improved. The TiO2−x N y acts as the acceptor of photoinduced holes. The recombination of the electron-hole was effectively depressed by the heterogeneous electron transfer. This could be an effective way to obtain highly active photocatalysts.
