TiO2 Photocatalytic Oxidation Technology

Photo- catalysis is a reaction which transfers light to chemical reaction energy and activates a substance which modifies the rate of a chemical reaction without being consumed itself. nanoYo Super Fine Particle Titanium Dioxide, provides a continuous cleaning of the environmental bio-organic chemical burden without human intervention.

The Science of TiO2 Photocatalytic Oxidation (PCO).

Titanium Dioxide, also known as Titania, is the naturally occurring oxide of Titanium (chemical formula TiO2). Titanium Dioxide is considered a safe substance and harmless to humans. It is commonly used in ceramics, condensers, cosmetics, crayons, electronic components, food (as E171), paint, printing ink, plastics, paper, rubber and synthetic fibers. Many studies have been published on the use of titanium dioxide as a photocatalyst for the decomposition of organic compounds. After illumination by light, titanium dioxide produces hydroxyl radicals, which react with the organic matter in the air to form non-toxic water and minute concentrations of carbon dioxide.

The photocatalytic properties of TiO2 can be brought to good use in the following five major functions;

Air Purification  Removes Ethylene, Formaldehyde, NOx, Particulate Matter (PM), SOx,and VOCs.

Anti-Bacteria   Evaporates Anthrax, Avian Flu H5N8, Black Mould, Candida, C. Difficile, E. Coli, H1 N1, Legionnaires, Listeria, Mould & Fungi, MRSA (staph), Ms-2, Mycobacterium fortiutum, NDM-1, NvN1, SARS, Strep, Salmonella, VRE and many many more of the countless strains in existence. 

Contamination Prevention  (Self-cleaning) Oil, Soil, Rain stain, Soot etc...all removed using the power of light on the hydrophilic surface and its Self-clean function.

Deodorisation Aldehyde, Algal, Ammonia, Bacterial, Chloroform, Diesel, Fungal, Garbage, Mercapton, Mould, P-dischlorobenzene, Pest infestation, Sterilisation, Sulphurated Hydrogen, Tobacco odour etc.

Water Purification  Dye, Organic Chloride, Starch. TiO2 PCO causes detrimental damage to organic matter such as post disinfection organic chlorine compounds... Bromodichloromethane, Dibromochloromethane, Tetrachloroethene, Tribromomethane (bromoform), Trichloromethane(chloroform) and many other harmful substances...Turn contaminated water into potable grade using the photocatalytic properties inside clear distillation tubes or pipes or flatbed techniques. (which can also be utilised instead of using a basic TiO2 slurry and the associated recovery costs).
