Abstract

Titanium dioxide (TiO2) films have been highly commercialized as photocatalyst coatings with applications in technologies such as self-cleaning glass. There is however interest in developing superior coatings that operate under domestic lighting conditions for cleaning and anti-microbial applications in healthcare environments. One such approach to improve on TiO2 is to shift the band-gap from UV into the visible region of the spectrum, thus harvesting a greater proportion of solar energy and allowing the films to work under indoor-lighting conditions. This paper shows an example of the selective doping of TiO2 with beneficial results in the quest for visible light photocatalyst with anti-microbial properties.
