Abstract:

The photocatalyzed reaction of hydroquinone with oxygen at TiO2 anatase powders coated with metal-free or magnesium phthalocyanine under irradiation with light of energy less than the TiO2 band gap is described. The behavior at the powders is correlated with current-potential curves at single crystal n-type TiO2 electrode and an energy level scheme for the reaction is proposed. Author
