Photocatalytic and superhydrophilic materials for applications in self-cleaning windows, anti-fogging lenses, antimicrobial surfaces, water-splitting and air purification has gained considerable interest throughout the past two decades, with industrial and academic R&D being undertaken. Despite more than 200,000 publications on the foremost photocatalyst, TiO2, there are a multitude of production and testing techniques employed, often resulting in conflicting results and claims. Opportunities to discuss these issues in a multi-disciplinary environment are limited and this 2 day workshop aims to address this by bringing together product end users with academics, industrialists and health professionals from across this field. This is the third workshop in this series.


  • Biomedical and environmental applications including antimicrobial surfaces and infection control measures; self-cleaning surfaces, water/air purification; water splitting;

  • Measurement of photocatalytic activity and superhydrophilic behaviour; film and particle characterisation techniques; approaches towards standardisation;

  • The production of titania-based photocatalytic and/or superhydrophilic coatings by PVD, CVD, ALD, sol-gel, etc.; industrial applications, scale-up, etc.;

  • The production of titania-based nano materials for inclusion in e.g. paints, polymers, solar cells, membranes and building products;

  • Alternative materials and new applications;
