NANO TITANIUM OXIDE APPLICATIONS
One of the most important properties of the nano titanium oxide is its high reactivity when affected by UV light that let it absorb pollutants, making it a very environmentally friendly material. More precisely, the electrons released with the sunlight allow the oxygen to react with organic substances such as CO, NOX and SOX, transforming them into harmless molecules such as water and carbon dioxide (photocatalytic paints). Its improved scratch resistance, ease of cleaning and resistance to organic solvents make it one of the best ingredients for pollution-absorbing paints.
The application of TiO2 nanoparticles as photocatalyst is extensively used for the removal of micropollutants in water treatments as an alternative to traditional disinfection techniques. TiO2 photocatalysis is a more efficient method for the degradation of many pharmaceuticals micropollutants as compared to photolysis. Airborne pollutants molecules may be adsorbed onto the TiO2 surface and react with these radicals and chemically decompose, ideally leading to the formation of carbon dioxide (CO2) and water (H2O).
Various organic substances degrade when exposed to titanium oxide nanoparticles, making it extremely useful in several decontamination efforts, such as treatment of sewage and organic chemical waste products, remediation of polluted air produced by thermal power stations and heavy traffic or industrial waste water polluted by specific organic components.
Nano titanium oxide has a high surface area and exhibits enhanced magnetic properties, too. These nanoparticles are known for their ability to inhibit bacterial growth and prevent further formation of cell structures.
Nano Titanium oxide particles have been successfully tested for various construction materials (i.e. concrete, concrete tiles, ceramic and roof tiles, in the form of additive or as thin layer). The final construction materials show higher hydrophilic and photocatalytic effects which enable organic pollutant removal and NOX gas removal. Organic compounds such as alcohols, carboxylic acid, phenolic derivatives, and chlorinated aromatics can be readily mineralised by TiO2 into harmless carbon dioxide, water and simple mineral acids, using molecular oxygen as the primary oxidant.
Thanks to their inherent UV-resistance, TiO2 nanoparticles represent a crucial ingredient in various coatings and materials, offering some degree of UV shielding and magnetic properties. They are suitable for production of self-cleaning materials, such as self-cleaning glasses and ceramics. Nano titanium oxide is also known for improving the opacity and impressionability of paper products.
The optical properties of titanium oxide nanopowder make it valuable in the production of printing inks and cosmetics. In fact, many cosmetics employ titanium oxide nanoparticles for their unique antibacterial and antiseptic properties. This includes moisturisers, beauty creams, whitening creams, vanishing creams, sunscreens, powdered make-up, skin rinses, and many other products.
Titanium oxide nanoparticles are a key raw material and catalyst in the semiconductors field and in various metallurgical processes. Alloys produced using this material include carbide alloys and ferrotitanium alloys. Some chemical fibres are produced with titanium oxide nanoparticles, as are food packing materials and other materials where the antibacterial properties of titanium oxide would be needed.
