Photocatalytic activity of anatase-type TiO2 nanoparticles with different shape, prepared by gel-sol method, was evaluated. Particle morphology, that is, the main surface crystal plane was found critically decisive for the photocatalytic activity for H2 evolution from aqueous ethanol. Namely, the activity of cubic particles bound by {100} and {001} faces, estimated from highresolution TEM images, showed highest activity among one tested.
