A TiO2-nanotube-array-based photocatalytic fuel cell using refractory organic compounds as substrates for electricity generation

Author affiliations

Abstract

A TiO2-nanotube-array-based photocatalytic fuel cell system was established for generation of electricity from various refractory organic compounds and simultaneous wastewater treatment. The present system can respond to visible light and produce obviously enhanced cell performance when a narrow band-gap semiconductor (i.e.Cu2O and CdS) was combined with TiO2 nanotubes.
