Abstract

The authors thank the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) for funding (EP/K036769/1; EP/K022237/1) and Royal Society for a Wolfson Merit Award (JI)Photocatalytic conversion of cellulose to sugars and carbon dioxide with simultaneous production of hydrogen assisted by cellulose decomposition under UV or solar light irradiation was achieved upon immobilization of cellulose onto a TiO2 photocatalyst. This approach enables production of hydrogen from water without using valuable sacrificial agents, and provides the possibility for recovering sugars as liquid fuels.Publisher PDFPeer reviewe
