Abstract

Multicomponent Cu-Cu2O-TiO2 nanojunction systems were successfully synthesized by a mild chemical process, and their structure and composition were thoroughly analyzed by X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy, field-emission scanning electron microscopy, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The as-prepared Cu-Cu2O-TiO2 (3 and 9 h) nanojunctions demonstrated higher photocatalytic activities under UV/Vis light irradiation in the process of the degradation of organic compounds than those of the Cu-Cu2O, Cu-TiO2, and Cu2O-TiO2 starting materials. Moreover, time-resolved photoluminescence spectra demonstrated that the quenching times of electrons and holes in Cu-Cu2O-TiO2 (3 h) is higher than that of Cu-Cu2O-TiO2 (9 h); this leads to a better photocatalytic performance of Cu-Cu2O-TiO2 (3 h). The improvement in photodegradation activity and electron-hole separation of Cu-Cu2O-TiO2 (3 h) can be ascribed to the rational coupling of components and dimensional control. Meanwhile, an unusual electron-hole transmission pathway for photocatalytic reactions over Cu-Cu2O-TiO2 nanojunctions was also identified.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 14 March 2013.
All research outputs
#4,647,361
of 6,287,087 outputs
Outputs from Chemistry - An Asian Journal
#309
of 1,273 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#65,816
of 98,604 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Chemistry - An Asian Journal
#5
of 13 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 6,287,087 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 14th percentile – i.e., 14% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,273 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.3. This one is in the 40th percentile – i.e., 40% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 98,604 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 19th percentile – i.e., 19% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 13 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
