Functional principle of photocatalysis

Photocatalysis and Photocatalysts

The acceleration (increase in the reaction rate) of a photo reaction due to a photocatalyst, which is itself not consumed during the reaction, is called photocatalysis. The photcatalyst utilizes the energy of light (UV-VIS). Typically photocatalytic materials are based on titanium dioxide. Titanium dioxide coated iron oxides represent a novel group of inorganic pigments bearing photocatalytic activity.

Material testing

The photocatalytic applications presented on this website have been successfully transferred into practice by our members for several years already. The effectiveness and functionalities are verified in cooperation with renowned testing institutes and independent public authorities via quality inspections and scientific tests. Additionally, there are many realistic proofs of the functionality of photocatalytic materials as it can be seen in the following examples:
