Extermination of influenza virus H1N1 by a new visible-light-induced photocatalyst under fluorescent light.

Abstract

A new visible-light-induced photocatalyst based on several transition metals (iron, magnesium and manganese)-loaded TiO2 was evaluated for its anti-viral activity with influenza virus H1N1. Under a fluorescent lamp of 1000 lx, λ > 410 nm, the virus was eradicated to more than 99% within 30 min. Since this photocatalyst can be used for coating plastics, wall… (More)
