Structure-Reactivity Relationships of Anatase and Rutile TiO2 Nanocrystals Measured by In Situ Vibrational Spectroscopy
2010 (English)In: Solid State Phenomena, ISSN 1012-0394, Vol. 162, 203-219 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
A comprehensive analysis of structural-reactivity relations on TiO2 nanocrystals is presented. Using an interplay between TEM, X-ray diffraction and vibrational spectroscopy of well-defined anatase and rutile TiO2 nanocrystals correlations between the adsorbate structure of formic acid and the corresponding photo-induced decomposition rate are described. It is demonstrated that the detailed bonding configuration determines the decomposition rate. Generalizations and implications of the findings are discussed.
