CO2 utilization by direct catalytic conversion of CO2 driven by solar energy is an attractive approach for producing alternative value added products suitable for end-use infrastructure. In order to fully harness the solar spectrum and increase photocatalytic activity and selectivity, Cr-TiO2 based films were deposited on ceramic honeycomb monoliths with varying concentrations synthesized by sol-gel technique and dip coating route. The improved photocatalytic activity of the Cr-TiO2 monoliths in the visible light region compared to pure TiO2 can be attributed to increased visible light absorption and accessible active metal sites arising from the appropriate metal dispersion and loading amount.
