Titanium dioxide photocatalysed water disinfection is induced by the interaction of light with TiO(2), which generates highly reactive free hydroxyl radicals (OH(*)). These free radicals create lethal damage that leads to bacterial death. Normally, decreasing TiO(2) particle size increases the area of light interaction. This may possibly increase the… CONTINUE READING
