Abstract

Photocatalyst TiO2/Cu2O made by depositing Cu2O quantum dots on TiO2 nano-particles, photoreduces water under sacrificial conditions as a result of efficient separation of electrons and holes into TiO2 and Cu2O, respectively. Although oxidations take place at Cu2O sites, these quantum dots remained stable towards oxidation.
