Investigators from Central University Have Reported New Data on Photocatalytics (High visible light activity of hydrogenated structure-engineered mixed phase titania photocatalyst)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Engineering -- A new study on Photocatalytics is now available. According to news reporting originating in Jharkhand, India, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "The hydrogenation induced band-edge tailing with the resultant red-shift in the absorption spectrum and the creation of oxygen vacancies have incredible impact on the functionality of the monophasic titania photocatalyst in detoxification of aqueous pollutant under solar radiation."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from Central University, "The mixed phase titania with optimum phase ratio consistently shows high activity in UV and/or visible radiation flux due to efficient separation of photo-generated charge carriers."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "We demonstrate that the hydrogenation of mixed phase titania (anatase-to-rutile ratio = 0.67) shows 15 times higher photocatalytic activity in the degradation of aqueous probe pollutant under the visible light, than the non-hydrogenated Degussa P25 catalyst."
