The electrical explosion of wires was used to prepare titanium dioxide nanopowders alloyed with silver nanoparticles. The photoelectrochemical properties and electronic structure of these materials were studied. The quantum yield for the photoelectrochemical current η and the flat band potential E fb for TiO2/Ag films were found to be proportional to the content of the Ag0 phase on the electrode surface.
