Abstract  TiO2 and /TiO2 photocatalysts were prepared by solgel method and characterized by Xray diffraction (XRD),BET N2 sorption analysis, IR spectroscopy and UVVis Diffuse Reflectance Spectroscopy (DRS).Photocatalytic degradation of CH3Br in air stream was studied over TiO2 and /TiO2 catalysts under various reaction conditions.The results indicated that the structural and photocatalytic properties of TiO2 were greatly improved by sulfation.The sulfated TiO2 (/TiO2) showed excellent reaction activity and stability for CH3Br photocatalytic decomposition even under the moist reaction conditions.It was found that both B acid sites and L acid sites exist on the /TiO2 catalyst,forming cooperative centers with superacidic characteristics.When compared to unmodified TiO2,the /TiO2 catalyst exhibited higher anatase content,smaller crystal size,higher specific surface area,centralized pore size distribution,and the blueshifted band edge of Uvvis adsorption spectra.
