The Catalytic Effect of a Semiconductor

  • T. Wolkenstein

Abstract

The technical applications of semiconductors are extremely varied. However, until recently physics ignored the use of semiconductors as catalysts of chemical reactions. Such typical semiconductors as cuprous oxide, zinc oxide, and vanadium pentoxide are at the same time typical catalysts. Semiconductors serve as catalysts for many chemical reactions, including oxidation and hydrogenation.
