- 化学化工－已发表论文 
Sr3Ti2O7 photocatalyst with perovskite-layered structure was synthesized by polymerized complex method (PCM). Cu ion as an effective dopant was loaded onto Sr3Ti2O7 catalyst. Cu/Sr3Ti2O7 catalyst was applied in the mixture of water and methanol, methanol was used as a sacrificial agent under ultra-violet irradiation, and the catalyst was characterized by XPS, XRD, and UV-Vis DRS. The results showed that Cu existed in several kinds of valence and the photocatalytic activity of Cu/Sr3Ti2O7 was superior to that of pure Sr3Ti2O7, Cu+ and adsorbed oxygen can accelerate the interfacial electron transfer. When the amount of Cu was 1.5%(w), the best catalytic effect was obtained and the stable average hydrogen evolution rate was about 550-600 mu mol.h(-1). The Cu/Sr3Ti2O7 after reduction attained the highest hydrogen evolution rate that was close to 1140.8 mu mol.h(-1).
