AbstractUV photolysis of aerated aqueous suspensions of TiO2 (Degussa P25) containing CH3OH at pH 8.5 produces HCHO. Addition of CuSO4 affects the rate of HCHO formation (R-HCHO) in two opposite ways. Below 2 mu M, R-HCHO increases with increasing [CuSO4] while at higher concentrations it slows down. The enhancement of R-HCHO at very low [CuSO4] is attributed to catalytic dismutation of O-2(center dot-) forming H2O2 and O-2. At higher [CuSO4], R-HCHO decrease is attributed to removal of mobile holes by copper. Square root dependency of HCHO yield on the absorbed light density is observed in the entire [CuSO4] range used. The square root dependency is generally attributed to competition between second-order electron-hole recombination and first-order trapping, although the lifetime of both electrons and holes is too short to enable their accumulation in the same nano-volume. It is shown here that the electron-hole recombination path involves reaction of the mobile holes with adsorbed O-2(center dot-). The experimental results provide indirect evidence that adsorbed O-2(center dot-) radical ions, which are produced via O-2 reaction with the TiO2 electrons, are important for the well known square root dependency. Unlike the mobile and trapped electrons, O-2(center dot-) has a relatively long lifetime and its accumulation in the nano-volume upon successive absorptions of photons is feasible. It is concluded that the reaction between the accumulated O-2(center dot-) and mobile holes is responsible for the square root law. The decrease of K-d, which has been suggested as a standard parameter for the nature of TiO2 by added Cu(II) implies an apparent improvement of the TiO2 quality as a photocatalyst.
