Is it a solar cell? Or a rechargeable battery? Actually, the patent-pending device invented at The Ohio State University is both: the world’s first solar battery. In the October 3, 2014 issue of the journal Nature Communications, the researchers report that they’ve succeeded in combining a battery and a solar cell into one hybrid device. […]

Research on the application of titanium dioxide as a photocatalyst has been carried out in many fields since it was discovered that this substance causes water splitting when exposed to ultraviolet light. For example, a titanium dioxide photocatalyst has been put into practical use for the decomposition of poisonous gas, etc. However, due to the […]
The discovery, which has previously only be theoretically-predicted by scientists, helps explain the interactions between single oxygen molecules and titanium dioxide, giving the research teams a better idea of how the compound functions. The scientists also say that it could point to further enhancement of the compound, as well as different functions, including the possibility […]
Imagine a city that could devour the very pollution that it creates. Such was the scenario envisioned by scientists in the Netherlands, who have found that using specially treated pavement on city streets can cut air pollution nearly in half. The researchers from Eindhoven University of Technology installed concrete paving which included titanium dioxide – […]
As titanium dioxide prices are continuing to escalate and production lead times are stretching, purchasing managers are scrambling to find alternative sources.
