Abstract

Methane-producing hollow nanocubes: Hybrid CuO-TiO 2-xN x hollow nanocubes have been synthesized by first depositing TiO 2 onto Cu 3N nanocube templates, then heating in air to oxidize the Cu 3N to CuO while concomitantly incorporating nitrogen into the TiO 2. The nanostructured CuO-TiO 2-xN x material photocatalytically converts CO 2 into methane under solar irradiation.
