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. (c) 2004 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
