Ultrasound-stimulated piezo-electrocatalysis has been studied for a period; however, the mechanism is still unclear mainly due to the coexistence with other multiple effects like sonocatalysis, which was usually ignored. In this work, with the non-piezoelectric H2Ti3O7 nanowires following the same experimental process in piezo-electrocatalysis, the sonocatalytic reduction performance of CO2 is investigated. By applying vibration under the excitation of ultrasound with various frequencies and powers, it is found that CO is the ultimate product with a selectivity of 100%, and the optimal CO yield of 8.3 μmol g−1 h−1 is achieved with the addition of sacrificial agents. The H2Ti3O7 catalysts are also found to present a good recycling utilization ability. This work indicates that the sonocatalysis effect may exist in the piezo-electrocatalytic process using the ultrasonic excitation, which is suggested to be taken into consideration when exploring the mechanism of piezo-electrocatalysis in the future.
