|Photocatalysis and nanoparticles:|
|1. Bio-mediated route of metal doping: A breakthrough
The main barriers of semiconductor photocatalysts include rapid recombination of photo-generated electron/hole pairs as well as backward reaction, high band gap, and activity only in the UV region. These barriers make the poor activation of the photocatalysts.
