Poster summary

The influence of reductive (H2, NH3) and oxidative (O3) actions on the hydrothermal phase of SnO2 has been studied. It has been established that in the H2 atmosphere already at 300 °C, the appearance of metallic tin is observed. In an NH3 atmosphere, the destruction of SnO2 does not occur up to 400°C. Ozonation of phases partially reduced by hydrogen makes it relatively easy to reproduce the characteristic absorption corresponding to Eg ~3.6 eV. After ozonation of phases reduced with ammonia, the fundamental absorption band of SnO2 remains shifted to the "blue part of the spectrum". It is possible that this difference is caused by partial nitriding of SnO2 in an NH3 atmosphere. The photocatalytic activity of the partially reduced/nitrided SnO2 phases is inferior to the hydrothermal form of the oxide.
