MK-8776 Titanium dioxide iO an n

Under UV-irradiation, TiO2 induces superhydrophilicity which allows water to spread over the surface rather than remaining as droplet [14], whilst in the dark the photocatalyst surface is gradually reverted to less hydrophilic [15]. Hydrophilic TiO2 has found various technological applications such as anti-fogging, self-cleaning coatings in cars, glass windows as well as component of large building surfaces for decrease of harmful air pollutants concentration such as NOx, VOCs, etc. [16].
