Local structures of Ag (I) clusters prepared within zeolites by ion-exchange method and their photochemical properties

Ag ion-exchanged zeolites (Ag/zeolites) have attracted special attention, since they are photochemically active and induce various photocatalytic and photochemical reactions. Isolated Ag+ ions, as well as small Ag ion clusters, can be stabilized within the nanoscaled pore systems of zeolites, and play a significant role in the photocatalytic and photochemical reactions as active site or electron-trapping site. This paper highlights recent advances in the studies on photocatalysis on Ag/zeolites and their photochemical properties. Special attention has been focused on the relationship between the local structures of the Ag species within zeolites and their role in the photocatalytic, as well as photochemical reactions.
