There is increasing interest in (predominantly) titania-based photocatalytic and superhydrophilic surfaces for applications including self-cleaning windows and surfaces, anti-fogging lenses, antimicrobial surfaces, water-splitting and air purification, with considerable industrial and academic R&D being undertaken.
However, 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 workshop will address the production of titania-based photocatalytic and/or superhydrophilic coatings; nanoparticles for inclusion in e.g. paints and building products; film and particle characterisation techniques; methods of assessing photocatalytic activity; alternative materials and new applications.
