Tailoring Photocatalytic Properties of Tungsten Oxide Thin Films

Abstract:

Article Preview

The structural and surface properties of thin, metal oxides films can be tailored by including various additives in the precursors’ systm. The paper presents a comparative approach concerning the properties of WO3 thin layers obtained via spray pyrolysis deposition (SPD) using hydrophilic and hydrophobic polymers as additives. The influence of the thin films composition and morphology is reported, considering their applications of photocatalyst in the advanced treatment of waters resulted in the dye finishing industry, containing methylen blue and methyl orange.
