Photocatalytic selectivity switch to C–C scission: α-methyl ejection of tert-butanol on TiO2(110)

The thermal and photochemical mechanistic pathways for tertiary alcohols on the rutile TiO2(110)-surface are studied with the example of tert-butanol. While the thermal reaction is known to yield isobutene, the photochemical ejection of a methyl radical is observed at 100 K. The C–C scission, which is accomp
