Title of the thesis:EPR Study of TiO2-Bi2O3 Composite Photocatalysts
Summary:The ability of a composite photocatalyst with a potential to form the reactive oxygen species under a visible light exposure has been studied. The composite was prepared by combining TiO2 nanorods with a β-Bi2O3 semiconductor or rather a (BiO)2CO3, in order to improve the separation of the photogenerated electron-hole pairs. The studied suspensions have been prepared either in water or dimethylsulfoxide and studied by EPR spin trapping technique during in situ photo-excitation by UVA or by visible light irradiation, the concentration of the detected spin adduct has been used to evaluate their photocatalytic activity. The synthesized composite nanoparticles indicated higher photocatalytic activity than the standard P25 TiO2 under the UVA and VIS irradiation. With the aim to determine the optimal ratio between titanium dioxide and bismuth(III) oxide, a series of measurements was carried out and the results confirmed the higher concentration of spin adducts and photocatalytic activity in composites with higher content of the bismuth(III) oxide. The formation of heterojunction positively influences the overall photocatalytic activity.
Key words:Composite photocatalysts, Bi2O3, EPR Spectroscopy, Spin Trapping Technique, TiO2
