Catalysis of photooxidation reactions through transformation between Cu2+ and Cu+ in TiO2–Cu–MOF composites

Author affiliations

Abstract

Novel porous TiO2@Cu3(BTC)2 composites, which were synthesized using ionic liquids (ILs) as solvents, exhibited excellent activity for photooxidation of styrene to 4-aryl tetralones and promoting the Glaser coupling reaction with O2 under light irradiation. It was discovered that the transformation between Cu2+ and Cu+ was crucial for enhancing the photocatalytic performance.
