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.

Topics:

  • 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;
