Time-Dependent Density Functional Theory (TD-DFT) had been used to help interpret UV spectroscopic data, to assist deciphering the unique catalytic activity and selectivity in oxidation catalysis of an MFI-structured titanium silicates. It was inferred that a model containing tetrahedral Ti(OH)4 nanoparticles may account for the enhanced catalytic activity.
