Abstract
Solar light is inexhaustible, and therefore to take advantage of this energy it is necessary to develop materials capable of absorbing energy in the widest range of the solar spectra. Although TiO2 is one of the most studied photocatalysts, it only absorbs in the UV range. With the aim of increasing this light absorption towards the visible range, in this study Pd and WO3 were supported on bare TiO2 to determine their photocatalytic properties for generating hydrogen from water-methanol mixtures...
