Abstract

Two elusive radical intermediates; a methyl radical (·CH 3) and a carboxymethyl radical (·CH2CO 2H), have been confirmed for the first time by direct observation of their ESR absorptions at room temperature on the photocatalytic reactions of acetic acid and metal (platinum)-loaded titanium dioxide (Pt/TiO2) in aqueous solution.
