|Title:||Hybrid organic PVDF-inorganic M-rGO-TiO2 (M = Ag, Pt) nanocomposites for multifunctional volatile organic compound sensing and photocatalytic degradation-H2 production||Authors:||Ong, W.L.
|Issue Date:||21-Nov-2013||Citation:||Ong, W.L., Gao, M., Ho, G.W. (2013-11-21). Hybrid organic PVDF-inorganic M-rGO-TiO2 (M = Ag, Pt) nanocomposites for multifunctional volatile organic compound sensing and photocatalytic degradation-H2 production. Nanoscale 5 (22) : 11283-11290. ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1039/c3nr03276k||Abstract:||This work focused on the development of a hybrid organic-inorganic TiO 2 nanocomposite, which demonstrates the first ever report on harmful volatile organic compound (VOC) sensing and photocatalytic degradation-H 2 production. The sensing and photocatalytic properties are enhanced by the synergetic effects of well-structured TiO2 nanotubes, metal nanoparticles and reduced graphene oxide loading for enhanced light absorption and charge-transfer kinetics. Hybridization of a functionalized TiO2 nanocomposite with a polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) matrix induced strong cross-linking networks between the inorganic-organic components, which promote mechanical reinforcement-flexibility and highly porous asymmetric structures. The developed solution processable nanocomposite has immense potential to remedy the global environmental and energy issues by producing clean water/air and energy from organic compound waste. © 2013 The Royal Society of Chemistry.||Source Title:||Nanoscale||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/82483||ISSN:||20403364||DOI:||10.1039/c3nr03276k|
