Abstract

It is described the existence on the surface of a solid of acidic and basic centres. The correlation with electron donor-acceptor properties is described. The influence of such centres in influencing the reactivity in a photocatalytic process is discussed. The case of ethanoic acid photodecarboxylation over a series of insulator and semiconductor oxides and their mixtures is briefly reported outlining how the acid-base properties affect the photoreactivity.
