“Photocatalytic active nanostructured coatings on fabric substrates
for applications in air purification systems”
May 1st 2013 -September 30th 2016
Grant of the Romanian National Authority for Scientific Research, CNCS – UEFISCDI
Project budget 792.220 RON
The expected impact of this project is to make available new scientific information regarding photocatalytic materials on textile support since there is a niche in this field. The expected results will be a valuable addition to the knowledge in the field of metal oxide materials since direct growth of ZnO on textile substrates is in its infancy. This research program might open a broad field of technological applications since textile materials have countless functions in day by day life and photocatalytic activity is most certainly a valuable addition to the basic textile properties. Since the project targets air purification the fulfillment of the objectives will have a strong environmental, social and economic impact.
