Abstract: This short review paper shows the significance of recombination of a photoexcited electron and a hole in conduction and valence bands, respectively, of a titania photocatalyst, since recombination has not yet been fully understood and has not been evaluated adequately during the past several decades of research on heterogeneous photocatalysis.
Keywords: heterogeneous photocatalysis; recombination; photoexcited electron; hole; lattice defects; electron trap
