Effects of Metal-Ion Dopants on the Photocatalytic Reactivity of Quantum-Sized TiO_2 Particles


Oxidation and reduction rates are increased when the photocatalyst TiO_2 is doped with metal ions. The photochemical oxidation of CHCl_3 and the photochemical reduction of CCl_4 were examined in the presence of 21 different doped TiO_2 catalysts. Dopant metal ions with closed shells were found to have little effect on reactivity. The authors present their results in the form of a periodic chart.
