Development of Visible Light Active Nanostructured Photocatalysts for Environmental Applications

Synthesis of anion (F, N, S etc) and cation (Fe, Cr etc ) doped TiO2 nanoparticles and thin coatings active in the visible light. Synthesis and characterization of core-shell MeTiO2 (Me=Ag, Au, Pt etc) and mixed oxide nanostructures for water pollutants (dyes, pesticides) decomposition. Deposition of photoactive nanostructure coatings on various (glass, textile, cement and mortar) surfaces for development of self-cleaning, hydrophilic and/or hydrophobic properties. Synthesis of HA/TiO2-xNx nanocomposites for air pollutants oxidation. Development of methods for evaluation of photocatalytic activity in decomposition of air and water pollutants using UV and Visible light.
