Journal Article
LIU, I., LAWTON, L.A., BAHNEMANN, D.W. and ROBERTSON, P.K.J. 2005. The photocatalytic destruction of the cyanotoxin, nodularin using Ti02. Applied catalysis B: environmental [online], 60(3-4), pages 245-252. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.apcatb.2005.03.006

Titanium dioxide (TiO2) photocatalysis has been used to initiate the destruction of nodularin, a natural hepatotoxin produced by cyanobacteria. The destruction process was monitored using liquid chromatography“mass spectrometry analysis which has als... Read More about The photocatalytic destruction of the cyanotoxin, nodularin using Ti02..

A comparison of the effectiveness of TiO2 photocatalysis and UVA photolysis for the destruction of three pathogenic micro-organisms. (2005)
Journal Article
ROBERTSON, J.M.C., ROBERTSON, P.K.J. and LAWTON, L.A. 2005. A comparison of the effectiveness of TiO2 photocatalysis and UVA photolysis for the destruction of three pathogenic micro-organisms. Journal of photochemistry and photobiology A: chemistry [online], 175(1), pages 51-56. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jphotochem.2005.04.033

TiO2 photocatalysis has demonstrated efficacy as a treatment process for water contaminated with chemical pollutants. When exposed to UVA light TiO2 also demonstrates an effective bactericidal activity. The mechanism of this process has been reported...
