Article Preview

An Ag-Ce-TiO2 composite film was prepared by incorporating Ag in the Ce-TiO2 films with an impregnation method through photoreduction. The bactericidal activity of the Ag-Ce-TiO2 composite film and the effect of deposition of silver and doping cerium in the different irradiations on the antibacterial performance were assessed against Escherichia coli (E. coli). TIhrough characterization of X-ray diffraction (XRD), X-ray photoelectronic spectra (XPS) and UV/VIS diffusive reflectance spectra (DRS), it was found that the Ag-Ce-TiO2 composite film was composed of predominant anatase titania, cerium oxides (in the form of Ce2O3/CeO2) and silver nanoparticles. Moreover, the bactericidal activity of the Ag-Ce-TiO2 composite film and the effect of deposition of silver and doping cerium in the different irradiations on the antibacterial performance were assessed against Escherichia coli (E. coli). The results show that the Ag-Ce-TiO2 composite film has much higher antibacterial efficiency than that of glass and pure TiO2 film either in the room light or in the dark. Therefore, this composite film is promising in applications of antimicrobial and self-clean technologies.
