Nanotitanium Oxide as a Photocatalytic Material and its Application

Titanium dioxide, or titania (TiO2), is one of the more versatile nanomaterials, with applications in photocatalytic water remediation, solar water splitting, and energy harvesting. Titania is a wide band-gap semiconductor, and thus exhibits many interesting light-driven properties. In Chapter 6, aspects of titania nanoparticles are discussed, including the physical principles of photocatalysis, preparation of nanoscale titania, and the various applications of titania.
