The Doping of Ag+ Enhanced the Antibiocorrosive Effect of Titania in Seawater under Visible Light


Article Preview

Sol-gel TiO2 thin films undoped and doped with Ag-ions have been formed on 304ss by dip-coating method respectively. The Ag/TiO2 films are compact and have anatase phase with stable crystal structure and have a thickness of 50 nm approximately. The bactericidal rate of the Ag/TiO2 film against sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB) strains reaches 97.1% when doping Ag+ with a percentage of 3%. The analysis of potentiodynamic polarization curves illustrates Ag/TiO2 film decreases the corrosion rate obviously.
