Abstract
We successfully 3D printed Au/TiO2 monoliths for photogenerating hydrogen from water/ethanol gaseous mixtures under dynamic conditions. Monolith designs were printed by additive superposition of microfilaments of titania-based pastes. Factors influencing the efficiency of the photocatalytic reactions, including impregnation of gold nanoparticles (Au NPs), calcination temperature, diameter of microfilaments and monolith design, are investigated. The use of preformed Au NPs assured a constant Au p...
