Tio 2 an ideal photocatalyst l.jpg

TiO2 – an Ideal Photocatalyst

  • Cheap and can be reused

  • High photo-chemical corrosive resistance

  • Strong oxidizing power

  • Photocatalysis takes place at ambient temperature

  • Atmospheric oxygen is used for the reaction


Tio 2 photocatalysis l.jpg

TiO2 - Photocatalysis

3.12 eV (380 nm)


Redox potential of h l.jpg

Redox potential of h+

  • The redox potential for photogenerated h+ is +2.53 V vs. the SHE

  • After reaction with water, these h+ can produce •OH

  • Both h+ and •OH are more positive compare to ozone

Entail physicochemical properties of tio 2 l.jpg

Entail Physicochemical Properties of TiO2

The applications of TiO2 is a function of specific physicochemical properties like:

  • High Surface area

  • Small Crystalline Size

  • Anatase form of TiO2

  • High crystallinity

  • Porous structure

  • Activation light source

    An appropriate synthetic procedure can provide TiO2 with promising efficiency


Synthesis of tio 2 powders l.jpg

Synthesis of TiO2 Powders

Synthesis of TiO2 powders

  • Sulfate Method

  • Chloride Method

  • Specific Methods

  • Sol-Gel Method

Vi sible light active photocatalyst l.jpg

Visible-Light Active Photocatalyst

TiO2– efficient photocatalyst under UV light

Yet, need visible-light active photocatalyst for practical purpose

Can be achieved by doping TiO2 with nonmetals, transition metals and dyes

Activity increases by loading a metaloxide

Metal oxide reduces the chance of recombination of electrons & holes produced during photocatalytic reactions
