“T-2: New Photocatalyst Nanotechnology! Photocatalysis refers to the chemical reaction that occurs when light strikes a chemical compound that is light sensitive, such as titanium oxide. When light strikes titanium dioxide, the base compound in T-2, a chemical reaction will be repeated in the immediate region and cause the breakdown of organic toxins, odors, and more.” “Titanium dioxide's photocatalytic characteristics are greatly enhanced due to the advent of nanotechnology. At nano-scale, not only the surface area of titanium dioxide particle increases dramatically but also it exhibits other effects on optical properties and size quantization. An increased rate in photocatalytic reaction is observed as the redox potential increases and the size decreases. In some cases (such as with T-2's special composition) energy from any ambient light source can be used effectively as the energy source of photocatalysis instead of UV light.”
