Spatially confined photocatalytic microreactors for microheterogeneous photoreduction of metal ions from aqueous solutions have been developed. The microreactors consist of hollow micron-sized polyelectrolyte capsules with photoactive TiO2 nanoparticles incorporated in the walls. Additional improvements in metal photoreduction efficiency were achieved by filling the microcapsule cavity with a more effective electron donor.
