- interstitial doping;
- visible-light photocatalysis
N-TiO2 prepared by atmospheric pressure chemical vapour deposition shows visible light photocatalysis. This is to our knowledge the first example of an N-doped anatase film with only interstitial doping. The film was prepared using a method that is entirely compatible with industrial processes for producing self-cleaning glass.
