  • Nanocrystal−molecular hybrids for the photocatalytic oxidation of water

    Bastús N.G., Gimbert-Suriñach C., Puntes V., Llobet A., Ventosa M., Oliveras J. ACS Applied Energy Materials; 3 (10): 10008 - 10014. 2020. 10.1021/acsaem.0c01685. IF: 4.473

    A modular molecular hybrid colloidal photocatalyst composed of TiO2 nanocrystals (TiO2-NCs) as a light absorber and the molecular complex [Ru(tda)(pypyr)2], Ru-tda, as a water oxidation catalyst precursor both anchored onto single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) is described. This colloidal molecular hybrid photocatalyst, labeled as Ru-tda/SWCNT/TiO2-NCs, is a robust material that can be easily prepared and scaled up. At neutral pH, in the presence of 3 sun illumination, the molecular hybrid material Ru-tda/SWCNT/TiO2-NCs is capable of achieving the photocatalytic oxidation of water to dioxygen in the presence of persulfate, giving an unprecedented turnover number of 229. © 2020 American Chemical Society
