A cobalamin derivative, cobyrinie acid, was effectively immobilized on TiO 2, and the hybrid TiO 2 was characterized by UV-vis, XPS, MALDI-TOFMS as well as TEM analysis. The hybrid TiO 2 exhibits high reactivity for dehalogenation of various organic halides such as phenethyl bromide, benzyl bromide, and 1,1-bis(4-chlorophenyl)-2,2,2-trichloroethane (DDT) under irradiation with UV light at room temperature.
