ABSTRACT
Photocatalytic TiO2 materials have been one of the strong subjects of investigation for these ten years among various kinds of advanced functional materials. For studying the catalytic reaction by physical science techniques, a kind of transmission electron microscope technique is presented and applied to the study of photocatalysis on TiO2 films by UV light. Using the technique, we visualized in situ the decomposition process of hydrocarbons deposited on the TiO2 films in atomic level and elucidated a mechanism of the decomposition process. © 2004 American Institute of Physics.
