Paper Title:
Visible Light Responsive Titanium Dioxide Photocatalysts Prepared by Ultraviolet Irradiation
  Abstract

Titanium dioxide photocatalyst films were prepared by dip-coating method using titanium dioxide sol solution in order to research the H2O addition effect on the photocatalytic activities. The sol solution was prepared with titanium tetra-isopropoxide, urea and 2-methoxyethanol, then irradiated ultraviolet light and added distilled H2O. The substrates for the dip-coating were fused silica plates and as-prepared films were dried at 100 °C then annealed at 650 °C. The films prepared by these methods showed visible light absorption in wavelengths longer than 380 nm and accelerated photodegradation of methylene blue by visible light irradiation. Furthermore, the photocatalytic activities of these films were depending on the H2O additions to the sol solution.
