Surface Photocatalysis: Principles and Applications
0.5 Credit

Surface photocatalysis using titanium dioxide (TiO2) is increasingly becoming an attractive area of environmental research and beyond. TiO2-based materials are being used in the treatment of contaminated air and water, the manufacturing self-cleaning materials, the improvement of air quality, and to increase energy efficiency. This course will cover the fundamentals of photocatalysis, advances in the synthesis of photocatalytic materials, and novel applications of photocatalysis in areas related to environmental sustainability and energy conversion.
