Photo-Catalytic Properties of Ceramic Coating of TiO2
TiO2 coatings on ceramic substrate were prepared using TiOSO4 and silica sol. Coatings were then heat-treated respectively at 300°C, 400°C or 500°C for 30mins. Degradation of the solution of chlorinated methane by UV light and TiO2 coating were investigated. It can be concluded from the results that the coating with composition of 80wt%TiO2-20wt%SiO2 heated at 500°C display better degradation effect than the other coatings. As the initial concentration of chloromethane goes up, the degradation rate increases; while as the degree of substitution by chlorine goes up, the catalytic effects decreases.
