          Abstract

          In this work, anatase-type TiO 2 layers were prepared by deposition of precursor solution including titanium isopropoxide, ethanol and acetic acetylacetone on a FTO substrate using rapid expansion of supercritical solutions (RESS). The spraying to obtain a particulate coating of TiO 2 was carried out at 65 °C and 180 bar of supercritical carbon dioxide environment. Then, thermal annealing at 550 °C for 2 h was applied to coated substrates to obtain desired phase composition. The structural and optical properties of the film were evaluated by XRD, SEM and UV-Vis. SEM observation showed that the photoanode film has porous microstructure with interconnected spherical TiO 2 grains. TiO 2 film has a band gap of 2.6 eV.

          Kurzfassung

          In der diesem Beitrag zugrunde liegenden Forschungsarbeit wurde eine Anatas-artige TiO 2-Schicht hergestellt, indem eine Precursor-Lösung aus Titan-Isopropoxid, Ethanol und essigsaurem Acetylaceton auf einem FTO-Substrat aufgebracht wurde, wobei die schnelle Ausdehnung superkritischer Lösungen (RESS) angewandt wurde. Der Spritzprozess, um die partikuläre TiO 2-Schicht herzustellen, wurde bei 65 °C und 180 bar in einer superkritischen Kohlendioxid-Umgebung durchgeführt. Danach wurden die beschichteten Substrate bei 550 °C über 2 h geglüht, um die gewünschte Phasenkombination zu erhalten. Die strukturellen und optischen Eigenschaften der Schichten wurden mittels XRD, REM und UV-VIS analysiert. Während der REM-Untersuchung stellte sich heraus, dass der photoanodische Film eine poröse Mikrostruktur mit ineinander verbundenen kugeligen TiO 2-Körnern hat. Der TiO 2-Film hat einen Bandabstand von 2.6 eV.
