Abstract: As part of a laboratory course, undergraduate students were asked to use baker's yeast cells as biotemplate in preparing TiO2 powders and to test the photocatalytic activity of the resulting materials. This laboratory experience, selected because of the important environmental implications of soft chemistry and photocatalysis, provides an opportunity to teach valuable laboratory skills and to introduce students to the synthesis, isolation, and characterization of inorganic materials. This laboratory activity is adaptable to a range of educational levels and to various instrumental techniques.
Template and target information: Baker's yeast, yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae
