This study focuses on the influence of interface modifiers on the charge transport of hybrid nanoporous titanium dioxide (TiO2)/poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT) nanocomposites by using the time of flight technique. We found that the hole-mobility in the nanocomposites is about three orders of magnitude less tha. This chapter contains sections titled: Introduction.

AcknowledgmentAuthor: Chuncheng Cheng, Zhaohui Wang, Wanhong Ma, Hongwei Ji, Jincai Zhao. Photodegradation is the alteration of materials by light. Typically, the term refers to the combined action of sunlight and air. Photodegradation is usually oxidation and hydrolysis. Often photodegradation is avoided, since it destroys paintings and other artifacts. It is however partly responsible for remineralization of biomass and is used. Photochemistry is the science that deals with the study of physical and chemical processes that arise from the interaction between radiation used for irradiation and absorbing molecules [].The light radiation together in the presence of oxygen induces photooxidative reactions on synthetic organic materials, mostly based on chain scission and cross-linking reactions of polymers Author: Rodica-Mariana Ion, Alexandrina Nuta, Ana-Alexandra Sorescu, Lorena Iancu.
