Title: The effect of metals content on the photocatalytic activity of TiO2 modified by Pt/Au bimetallic nanoparticles prepared by sol-gel method

Abstract:

The TiO2 modified by monometallic (Au-TiO2, Pt-TiO2) and bimetallic (Pt/Au-TiO2) NPs have been synthesized by a simple sol-gel method. The optimal dosage of individual components in Pt/Au composition on photocatalytic activity has been systematically investigated. The obtained photocatalysts were thoroughly characterized by BET surface area measurements, UV vis diffuse-reflectance spectroscopy (DRS), X-ray diffraction analysis (XRD), scanning transmission microscopy (TEM) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The photocatalytic activity under visible light (lambda >420 nm and lambda >455 nm) has been estimated in phenol degradation reaction in an aqueous phase. The best photocatalytic activity has been observed for mono (0.5)Pt_TiO2 and bimetallic (0.5)Pt/(0.5)Au_TiO2 samples with an optimum platinum content. The Pt/Au_TiO2 radical formation mechanism was systematically investigated with the selected scavenger for the degradation process under vis light irradiation. The formation of O-2(center dot)- with (0.5)Pt/(0.5)Au_TiO2 was established from the high inhibition of phenol degradation. Based on the XPS analysis it was observed that the greater photoactivity of bimetallic sample (0.5)Pt/(0.5)Au_TiO2 could result from a relatively higher content of platinum compared to gold on the surface layer. It must be noted that only platinum takes a significant part in Pt/Au composites on the photoactivity. Furthermore, in this work we present a linear relationship between the crystal size of TiO2 and the reaction rate of Au-TiO2, Pt-TiO2 and Pt/Au-TiO2. © 2017 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
