Structure of a photocatalyst-water interface - Spotlight on science - ESRF - Janvier 2017

Les travaux de Greg Cabailh parus dans Nature Materials font l’objet d’une actualité sur e site de l’ESRF.

Titanium dioxide was shown to be an active photocatalyst for water splitting more than forty years ago. Despite a truly enormous effort by the scientific community, the photocatalytic efficiency has remained stubbornly low. In part this is because of the huge challenge to obtain accurate data on the structure and dynamics associated with the photocatalytic process. Surface X-ray diffraction measurements have now revealed the structure of a model photocatalytic interface.
