Nanostructured metal oxide photocatalysts

High surface nanostructured metal oxides are object of intense research efforts for their ability to convert light into chemical energy through photocatalytic processes. The production of highly active photocatalytic materials requires the engineering of materials characteristics at the nanoscale in terms of size, crystallinity, composition, surface chemistry and porosity. Here, nanostructured materials with selected properties are produced by means of Flame Spray Pyrolysis and studied towards the development of photocatalysts for the degradation of organic compounds and the production of hydrogen.
