AbstractThe influence of adding Pt on the catalytic and photocatalytic activity of monodispersed brookite phase TiO2 (B-TiO2) nanorods (NRs) was investigated. Pt was deposited on the NRs by photodeposition in solution, and the Pt-modified NRs were characterized using XPS, STEM, and LEIS. The thermal and photocatalytic activity of the Pt-modified NRs were then evaluated using temperature-programmed desorption (TPD) in ultrahigh vacuum (UHV). ...
