A series of initial experiments to demonstrate the feasibility of hybrid photocatalyticphotovoltaic systems for simultaneous water purification and electricity generation have been conducted. Commercial TiO2 (Aeroxide P25) suspended nanoparticles have been used as a photocatalyst and an organic dye (Methylene Blue) as a pollutant. The photovoltaic output of the hybrid system was observed to be related to MB dye photodegradation, whereby as the pollutant degraded the optical transmission to the...[Show more]
