NO Degradation on the Anatase TiO2 (001) Surface in the Presence of Water


Two possible CT induced oxidation mechanisms for NO have been demonstrated, which show the formation of HONO+ by the interaction with water or the formation of NO+2 with a surface oxygen.
Our results indicated, that an excitation in the visible does in most cases lead to the creation of a hole on the NO molecule and an electron in the CB of TiO2.
