Photocatalytic activity of Sulfur-doped TiO$$_{2}$$ fiber under visible light illumination (Joint research)

Takeyama, Akinori; Yamamoto, Shunya; Yoshikawa, Masahito; Hasegawa, Yoshio*; Awatsu, Satoshi*

The Sol-Gel derived precursor fiber was annealed under hydrogen disulfeid (H$$_{2}$$S) following oxygen atmosphere, Sulfer-doped titanium dioxide (TiO$$_{2}$$) fiber was obtained. Crystal structure of the fiber was identified as anatase phase of TiO$$_{2}$$. The energy band gap of the fiber was narrower by about 0.06 eV than that of anatase, which showed that it could absorb visible light. The fiber contains about 0.58 atomic % of Sulfer, and they located at the oxygen lattice site of TiO$$_{2}$$. Under visible light illumination, the fiber degraded Trichroloethylen (TCE) and produced carbon dioxide (CO$$_{2}$$). This shows Sulfer-doped TiO$$_{2}$$ fiber has the photocatalytic activity under visible light illumination.
