Title
TiO2 photocatalysis: Design and applications
Abstract

TiO2 photocatalysis is widely used in a variety of applications and products in the environmental and energy fields, including self-cleaning surfaces, air and water purification systems, sterilization, hydrogen evolution, and photoelectrochemical conversion. The development of new materials, however, is strongly required to provide enhanced performances with respect to the photocatalytic properties and to find new uses for TiO2 photocatalysis. In this review, recent developments in the area of TiO2 photocatalysis research, in terms of new materials from a structural design perspective, have been summarized. The dimensionality associated with the structure of a TiO2 material can affect its properties and functions, including its photocatalytic performance, and also more specifically its surface area, adsorption, reflectance, adhesion, and carrier transportation properties. We provide a brief introduction to the current situation in TiO2 photocatalysis, and describe structurally controlled TiO2 photocatalysts which can be classified into zero-, one-, two-, and three-dimensional structures. Furthermore, novel applications of TiO2 surfaces for the fabrication of wettability patterns and for printing are discussed.

► TiO2 photocatalysts from the viewpoint of structural design and applications are summarized. ► We classified TiO2 photocatalysts into zero- to three-dimensional structures. ► The dimensionality of the structure of a TiO2 photocatalysts affects its properties and functions. ► New applications of TiO2 surfaces for wettability patterns and for printing is also described.
