Resumo

Although catalytic processes mediated by surface plasmon resonance (SPR) excitation have emerged as a new frontier in catalysis, the selectivity of these processes remains poorly understood. Here, the selectivity of the SPR-mediated oxidation of p-aminothiophenol (PATP) employing Au NPs as catalysts was controlled by the choice of catalysts (Au or TiO2-Au NPs) and by the modulation of the charge transfer from UV-excited TiO2 to Au. When Au NPs were employed as catalyst, the SPR-mediated oxidation of PATP yielded p,p-dimercaptobenzene (DMAB). When TiO2-Au NPs were employed as catalysts under both UVillumination and SPRexcitation, p-nitrophenol (PNTP) was formed from PATP in a single step. Interestingly, PNTP molecules were further reduced to DMAB after the UVillumination was removed. Our data show that control over charge-transfer processes may play an important role to tune activity, product formation, and selectivity in SPR-mediated catalytic processes. (AU)
