Title: Conformal Nitrogen-Doped TiO 2 Photocatalytic Coatings for Sunlight-Activated Membranes

Abstract

Photocatalytic degradation of organic contaminants is enticing for addressing challenging, nontraditional water sources. A novel nitrogen-doping method is utilized to grow conformal titania coatings with visible-light activity on porous membranes. Here, the resulting membranes exhibit effective degradation of model organic species in simulated sunlight while at the same time requiring substantially lower transmembrane pressure than undoped membranes.
