Nanotechnology has proved as a boon for people around the globe. With the development of nanotechnology, it has shown a ray of hope for solving many problems. The best invention by nanotechnology is Nano Photocatalytic Titanium Dioxide. This compound is available in powder form making it easy for use. The chemical formula is Nano-TiO2, and with the invention of this compound, it is making lives easier.
Titanium Dioxide: What You Need to Know
Titanium dioxide is the most common and widely used material in the world. Titanium is a naturally occurring metal, which reacts with oxygen to form Titanium Dioxide. This metal is available in the form of dust, sands, ores, and soil in the original state. Titanium Dioxide is well known for many versatile applications due to its small particle size and semiconductor properties.
It is very easy to find titanium dioxide in every product we use in our daily lives. These products are easily available in dyes, paints, skin cream, soap, sunscreen, and many more products.
What are the Uses?
Pure titanium dioxide is in the form of white powder. This powder is available in two forms – the pigment graded powder and ultrafine or nanoscale titanium dioxide.
Pigment graded powder: - It has excellent light-scattering properties. This is mostly used in paint coatings, plastic adhesive, rubber, cosmetics paper, food, and other ingredients.
Ultra Fine or Nanoscale Titanium Dioxide: - It is used in sunscreen as a barrier against ultraviolet light rays. For automobile emission treatment, it is used in the form of a nano or ultrafine form.
Features of Nano Photocatalytic Titanium Dioxide
The below-mentioned features will help you understand the uses of Nano Photocatalytic Titanium Dioxide:-
(1.) Sterilizing Effect: -TiO2 can decompose the harmful cells after killing it. This photocatalyst is quite effective as compared to another antibacterial agent. It has a long-lasting effect, and the photocatalytic reaction takes place even when the bacterial cells are covering the surface.
(2.) Deodorizing: - Either at the workplace or home, it is difficult to get rid of foul odors. Nano TiO2 is the best solution for odor elimination, and deodorizing is another important feature of the photocatalyst. They can eliminate foul odors like tobacco, formaldehyde, nitrogen dioxide, urine, etc. The foul odors can easily be eliminated with a photocatalyst.
(3.) Air and Water Purification: - The purification of air and water depends on the ability to oxidize or reduce various pollutant compounds present in the air no matter either it is CFC’s or any hazardous compound.
(4.) Self Cleaning: - This is the best option to maintain the exteriors of the building. Once applied on the exterior, it is cleaned without any risk. Apart from this, the cost of cleaning and maintenance reduces by a higher margin. The coating applied is hydrophilic.
The features mentioned above make them the first choice for every application as well as make them even more popular in the market.
The Final Thoughts
The features mentioned above are general functions of Nano Photocatalytic Titanium Dioxide. This has become possible with the help of Nano Technology, from cleaning to maintaining the exteriors of the buildings Nano – TiO2 is a long term solution for every requirement.
