Photothermocatalyticexpialadocious: The highly efficient photothermocatalytic detoxification of benzene is realized by coating nano TiO2 on the surfaces of a UV lamp without using an additional heater. Its high photothermocatalytic efficiency can be significantly enhanced by supporting well-dispersed Pt nanoparticles on TiO2. The excellent photothermocatalytic performance of TiO2 and Pt/TiO2 is due to the existence of new photothermocatalytic synergetic effects.
