Does anyone know how to activate these?? I have been trying for ages to achieve visible light reactivity of TiO2 doped with Ag towards a visible spectrum.
Also, I have CdS that I prepared from Cd(NO3)2.2H2O and thiourea which I irradiated with a Hg lamp.
I'm attempting to oxidise alcohols but nothing is working.
The recent reaction with the CdS had a 0.4% yield without the catalyst and 4% with.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I am stumbled at the moment with a huge amount of literature (that I have read and repeated) to say otherwise.
Sorry for the repeat if you're re-reading. I was wanting to approach our inorganic audience
