Title

Hollow TiO2 Nanoparticles as Photocatalysts for Organic Reactions

Description/Abstract/Artist Statement

TiO2, offering numerous advantages such as abundance, stability, non-toxicity and tunable photoactivity, has been widely used as a photocatalyst in a number of applications from artificial photosynthesis to environmental remediation. TiO2 based hollow nanoparticles have been recently designed and used in hydrogen production, carbon dioxide reduction, photodegradation of dyes and oxidation of alcohols, among others. However, they have been used rarely in carbon-carbon bond formation reactions. This poster will describe the synthesis of hollow TiO2 nanoparticles with tunable morphologies and their application in mediating [2+2] cycloaddition reactions.
