Effect of pH, inorganic ions, organic matter and H2O2 on E. coli K12 photocatalytic inactivation by TiO2: Implications in solar water disinfection
The effect of different chemical parameters on photocatalytic inactivation of E. coli K12 is discussed. Illumination was produced by a solar lamp and suspended TiO2 P-25 Degussa was used as catalyst.Expand

Bactericidal action of illuminated TiO2 on pure Escherichia coli and natural bacterial consortia: post-irradiation events in the dark and assessment of the effective disinfection time
Bactericidal action of illuminated TiO2 on pure culture of Escherichia coli K 12 and bacterial consortium was studied. Photocatalytic E. coli inactivation rate was dependent on the biologicalExpand

The bactericidal effect of TiO2 photocatalysis involves adsorption onto catalyst and the loss of membrane integrity.
The bactericidal effect of photocatalysis with TiO2 is well recognized, although its mode of action is still poorly characterized. It may involve oxidation, as illuminated TiO2 generates reactiveExpand
