To sensitise and encapsulate: Ru dye-sensitised TiO2 is encapsulated with plasma-polymerised polyallylamine to improve long-term stability under ambient conditions for photocatalytic water splitting. Using a Pd dichloro complex as the reduction catalyst and triethylamine as the electron source, a highly stable long-term performance as well as a small improvement in catalytic activity is achieved. The nanostructure is characterised by TEM as well as UV/Vis and ATR-FTIR spectroscopy.
