Photocatalysis
tio 2 an ideal photocatalyst
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
TiO2 - Photocatalysis

3.12 eV (380 nm)

redox potential of h
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
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
Synthesis of TiO2 Powders

Synthesis of TiO2 powders

  • Sulfate Method
  • Chloride Method
  • Specific Methods
  • Sol-Gel Method
vi sible light active photocatalyst
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
