Abstract

The interaction of organic molecules with titanium dioxide surfaces has been the subject of many studies over the last few decades. Numerous surface science techniques have been utilised to understand the often complex nature of these systems. The reasons for studying these systems are hugely diverse given that titanium dioxide has many technological and medical applications. Although surface science experiments investigating the adsorption of organic molecules on titanium dioxide surfaces is not a new area of research, the field continues to change and evolve as new potential applications are discovered and new techniques to study the systems are developed. This tutorial review aims to update previous reviews on the subject. It describes experimental and theoretical work on the adsorption of carboxylic acids, dye molecules, amino acids, alcohols, catechols and nitrogen containing compounds on single crystal TiO2 surfaces.
