Tungsten oxide loaded with nanoparticulate platinum is demonstrated to exhibit high activity for the decomposition of organic compounds both in liquid and gas phases; the activity was almost comparable to that of TiO2 under UV light irradiation and much higher than that of nitrogen-doped TiO2 under visible irradiation.
