Reports Outline Photocatalytics Study Findings from Henan University (Self-organized vanadium and nitrogen co-doped titania nanotube arrays with enhanced photocatalytic reduction of CO2 into CH4)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Biotech Week -- Data detailed on Photocatalytics have been presented. According to news reporting from Kaifeng, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Self-organized V-N co-doped TiO2 nanotube arrays (TNAs) with various doping amount were synthesized by anodizing in association with hydrothermal treatment."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from Henan University, "Impacts of V-N co-doping on the morphologies, phase structures, and photoelectrochemical properties of the TNAs films were thoroughly investigated. The co-doped TiO2 photocatalysts show remarkably enhanced photocatalytic activity for the CO2 photoreduction to methane under ultraviolet illumination."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The mechanism of the enhanced photocatalytic activity is discussed in detail."
