The abundant and renewable solar light is an ideal resource for the industrial application of TiO2 photocatalysis in environmental purification. Over the past decades, the pursuit for visible light photocatalysts with low cost, simple process and high efficiency remains a challenging task. Here, we develop a novel organic-inorganic nano-hybrid photocatalyst (conjugation-grafted-TiO2), which is obtained by chemically grafting the conjugated structures derived from polymer degradation onto the surfaces of TiO2 nanoparticles. The interfacial C-O-Ti bonds between TiO2 and conjugated structures can act as the pathway to quickly transfer the excited electrons from conjugated structures to TiO2, therefore contribute to high visible light photocatalytic efficiency. Our findings provide an economic process to prepare the conjugation-grafted-TiO2 nano-hybrid, and develop a routine to improve the photocatalytic efficiency of organic-inorganic hybrid materials through the interfacial interaction.
