We report on enhanced dihydroxylation of naphthalene on photoirradiated TiO2 particles by addition of H2O2 to the reaction solution. The rate was enhanced by 6–40 times by the addition of H2O2, and the quantum yield reached as high as 76% for rutile TiO2 powders. On the other hand, no such enhancement was observed for anatase TiO2 powders.
