Die vorliegende Arbeit wurde von Januar 2003 bis November 2005 am Institut für
Anorganische Chemie der Friedrich-Alexander Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg unter
Anleitung von Herrn Prof. Dr. Horst Kisch durchgeführt.

I gratefully thank my doctoral father Prof. Dr. H. Kisch for offering me the opportunity to
make my Ph. D. in Germany, in the interesting field of semiconductor photocatalysis and
for instructive discussions during my work.
I would like to thank Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft for the fellowship within the
Graduiertenkolleg “Homogener und Heterogener Electronentransfer” and Prof. Dr. U.
Nickel for collaboration within the Graduiertenkolleg.
I thank Dr. M. Moll, Dr. S. Y. Shaban, Dr. K. Hein and S. Kasper for the NMR, Dr. C.
Damm for the time resolved photocharge, M. Bachmüller for the mass spectroscopy, S.
Kammerer for the XRD measurements, C. Wronna for the elemental analysis, R. Müller
for TGA and BET measurements, and Dr. G. Frank for the TEM analysis. I am also
thankful to Dr. F. W. Heinemann for the X-ray crystal structure determinations and Dr. J.
Sutter for his assistance regarding computer problems.
To Dr. G. Burgeth and Dr. M. Hopfner who are not only my friends but also my
“teachers”, I am especially thankful for their sincerity, help, encouragement, and for always
reminding me to think optimistic in my hard times.
I am also grateful to S. Sperner and N. Mooren for being always there (in the Organic
Institute) for me and for their friendship.
I am deeply thankful to my sisters in Erlangen; Dr. O. Linnik and Dr. P. Pinto. They have
been tireless helping whenever I needed and there are no words to express my thanks to
I am indebted to my parents who educated me to be self-confident and self-sufficient in any
case in the life, but also made me feel like I am never alone. I thank them for their belief in
me, endless affection and support.
And to my sister, my best friend Bilge. Even so far from, my happiness was bigger; my
sorrow was less whenever I shared with her.
