Formation and Research of Properties of Photocatalytic Materials on the Basis of TiO2 for Water Treatment
The paper describes the sol-gel method for producing photocatalytic materials based on titanium oxide. The temperature-time regimes of heat treatment of the obtained materials are determined. The surface properties of the resulting coatings were studied by scanning electron microscopy and asthmatic force microscopy. The photocatalytic properties of the synthesized coatings and bulk samples were studied on destruction of methylene blue molecules in the developed water purification systems.
