Nitrogen-doped titania (TiO 2-xN y) nanoparticles with excellent visible-light-reactive photocatalytic activity were successfully prepared by a microwave-assisted hydrothermal process. The obtained TiO 2-xN y powders showed high specific surface area, fine particle size and excellent photocatalytic ability for the oxidative destruction of nitrogen monoxide under irradiation of both visible-light (λ > 510 nm) and UV light (λ > 290 nm).
