Abstract

Over more than three decades, the field of engineering of photocatalytic materials with unique properties and enhanced performance has received a huge attention. In this regard, different classes of materials were fabricated and used for different photocatalytic applications. Among these materials, recently multifunctional XTiO3 perovskites have drawn outstanding interest towards environmental remediation and energy conversion thanks to their unique structural, optical, physiochemical, electrical and thermal characteristics. XTiO3 perovskites are able to initiate different surface catalytic reactions. Under ultrasonic vibration or heating, XTiO3 perovskites can induce piezo-catalytic reactions due to the titling of their conduction and valence bands, resulting in the formation of separated charge carriers in the medium. In addition, under light irradiation, XTiO3 perovskites are considered as a new class of photocatalysts for environmental and energy related applications. Herein, we addressed the recent advances on variously synthesized, doped and formulated XTiO3 perovskite-type oxides showing piezo- and/or photocatalytic exploitation in environmental remediation and energy conversion. The control of structural crystallite size and phase, conductivity, morphology, oxygen vacancy control, doping agents and ratio has a significant role on the photocatalytic and piezocatalytic activities. The different piezo or/and photocatalytic processes mechanistic pathways towards varying applications were discussed. The current challenges facing these materials and future trends were addressed at the end of the review.
