Sorry, no etymologies found.
In their seminal 1972 paper on photochemical water splitting, Fujishima and Honda didn't even cite any of the earlier, sporadic reports of semiconductor photoactivity, probably because they simply didn't know about them.
To prevent the photoactivity, modern pigmentary TiO2 is coated with silica.
The photoactivity of this system can be systematically tuned to utilize different regions of the electromagnetic spectrum just by changing the size of the CdSe nanocrystal photosensitizer.
