Abstract

TiO2 coatings with different crystal structures were prepared from alkoxide solutions via the dip-coating technique. The physical properties, except the crystal structure, were adjusted to distinguish the effect of crystal structure on their photocatalytic property. The results of photocatalytic measurements using TiO2 coatings with different crystal structures showed that the decomposition of aqueous acetic acid was enhanced by the content of anatase phase.
