Covid-19 Defense - How Does Photocatalysis Work?

Photocatalysis is a well-known physical principle that provides powerful and everlasting disinfection. The titanium dioxide, (the catalyst) is not consumed in the reaction. The visible and ultraviolet energy spectrum of normal daylight activates the titanium dioxide nanocrystals (TiO2) on the surface producing a photocatalytic effect. The surface of our product is activated by light with  a wavelength under 420 nm (Visible and UV), the minimal amount required for safe, effective activation is 0.2W/m2. The product firmly adheres to the surface with 3-5 MPa. No pollutants or any particles are released into the environment.This means that the titanium dioxide nanocrystals absorb the UV light energy, producing free electrons and electron holes. The direct interaction of electrons and electron holes with molecules...
