There be pyrochlores on the horizon: Cationic lattice distortion and interchange are reduced dramatically by increasing the Ti/Y ratio in the pyrochlore, Y2Ti2O7. The chemical composition changes from the “stuffed” pyrochlore Y2(Ti2−xYx)O7−0.5 x via (Y2−zTiz)(Ti2−zYz)O7 to Y2−vTi2O7−1.5 v. Reduced distortion results in exclusive occupation of the B-site by titanium, which greatly increases photocatalytic activity.
