  • Titanium dioxide (TiO 2) used as photocatalyst to sterilize an aqueous solution containing staphylococcus aureus bacteria under near UV-visible irradiation source in presence of oxygen. This research aimed to purify and disinfect water from S.aureus bacteria by using naked and coupled TiO2 instead of using disinfectants that are used extensively in ho spitals and other health care setting. Primary experiments has been carried out to determi ned the optimum conditions which give high killing… CONTINUE READING
