Researchers from Wuhan University Describe Findings in Nanoparticles (In situ synthesis of CdS decorated titanate nano sheets with highly efficient visible-light-induced photoactivity)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- A new study on Nanoparticles is now available. According to news reporting from Wuhan, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Appropriately dispersed CdS nanoparticles were intimately embedded into titanate nanosheets (TNS) through ion-exchange and in situ sulfurization process. The sheet-like intermediates of titanate during the transforming process into nanotubes were firstly used as substrate for the decoration of CdS nanoparticles, and the synthesis route was achieved by ion-exchange process between titanate precursor and Cd2' ions solution, and the following sulfuration process by using Na2S solutions."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from Wuhan University, "The catalytic activity of the photocatalyst was investigated by photodegradation of Rhodamine B under visible light irradiation. With an optimal Cd/Ti molar ratio of 15%, the CdS/TNS composite exhibits the highest photocatalytic performance, which is approximately 5.4 times greater than that of pure INS."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The mechanism of the separation behavior of the photogenerated charges was also discussed."
