Photocatalytic reduction of CO2 with H2O: significant enhancement of the activity of Pt–TiO2 in CH4 formation by addition of MgO

Author affiliations

Abstract

Photocatalytic activity in the reduction of CO2 with H2O to CH4 was significantly enhanced by simply adding MgO to TiO2 loaded with Pt. A positive correlation between CH4 formation activity and basicity was observed. The interface between TiO2, Pt and MgO in the trinary nanocomposite played a crucial role in CO2 photocatalytic reduction.
