Hybridizing carbon nanotubes with complex inorganic nanostructures provides a new route to designing next-generation photocatalysts. These hybrids utilize charge transfer processes through the interface, which reduce the electron–hole recombination rate in the photocatalyst. This work presents the first complex CNT hybrid, using titanium-silicate (TS-1), with dramatically improved photocatalytic activity for the degradation of organic compounds compared with the corresponding nanocomposite and the individual components.
