  1. 1. Photonic crystals and photocatalysis : Study of titania inverse opals

    Author : Delphine Misao Lebrun; Lars Österlund; Martyn Pemble; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; photocatalysis; titania; inverse opal; photonic crystal; optics; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot fasta tillståndets fysik; Engineering Science with specialization in Solid State Physics;

    Abstract : Due to an increase of human activity, an increase health risk has emerged from the presence of pollutants in the environment. In the transition to renewable and sustainable life style, treatment of pollutants could support the shifting societies. READ MORE

  2. 2. Accumulative Charge Separation in Photocatalysis : From Molecules to Nanoparticles

    Author : Mariia Pavliuk; Jacinto Sá; Leif Hammarström; Gary Brudvig; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Accumulative charge separation; Electron transfer; Plasmon dynamics; Time-resolved spectroscopy; Photocatalysis.; Chemistry with specialization in Physical Chemistry; Kemi med inriktning mot fysikalisk kemi;

    Abstract : Photochemical energy conversion into solar fuel involves steps of light absorption, charge separation and catalysis. Nature has taught us that the effective accumulation of redox equivalents and charge separation are the key steps in sunlight conversion. READ MORE

  3. 3. Photocatalysis for Indoor Air Cleaning : In situ FTIR and DFT Study of Acetaldehyde Photo-Oxidation on TiO2 and Sulfate-Modified TiO2

    Author : Bozhidar Stefanov; Lars Österlund; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TiO2; acetaldehyde; crotonaldehyde; dimer; adsorption; DFT; FTIR; photocatalysis; micro-kinetic modeling; acid–base properties; surface functionalization; Solid State Physics; Fasta tillståndets fysik; Materialvetenskap; Materials Science;

    Abstract : Acetaldehyde is among the group of VOC’s causing the so-called "sick building" syndrome. WHO has estimated that this problem, related to the indoor air-quality, affects one third of all buildings worldwide. TiO2 is an attractive material for the photocatalytic removal of VOC’s in the indoor environment. READ MORE

  4. 4. Titanium Dioxide Photocatalysis in Biomaterials Applications

    Author : Yanling Cai; Ken Welch; Maria Strømme; Håkan Engqvist; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; titanium dioxide; photocatalysis; bioactivity; antibacterial effect; metabolic activity assay; biofilm; reactive oxygen species; disinfection kinetics; post-UV;

    Abstract : Despite extensive preventative efforts, the problem of controlling infections associated with biomedical materials persists. Bacteria tend to colonize on biocompatible materials and form biofilms; thus, novel biomaterials with antibacterial properties are of great interest. READ MORE

  5. 5. Graphene-based nanocomposites for electronics and photocatalysis

    Author : Ebrahim Chalangar; Håkan Pettersson; Magnus Willander; Omer Nour; Maria Messing; Högskolan i Halmstad; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Graphene; Zinc oxide; Silver iodine; Plasmonics; Nanocomposites; Conjugated electronics; Photocatalysis; Photodegradation;

    Abstract : The development of future electronics depends on the availability of suitable functional materials. Printed electronics, for example, relies on access to highly conductive, inexpensive and printable materials, while strong light absorption and low carrier recombination rates are demanded in photocatalysis industry.
