Abstract:

Titanium dioxide has been concentrated recently due to its efficient utilization in Dye sensitized solar cells which was first demonstrated by Graetzel. Apart from this, Titanium has its own applications in cosmetics such as sunscreens, pharmaceutics as antibacterial coatings, food products, tooth paste and also in other products such as plastics, papers and inks. It is also thermally stable therefore used in implants and in aeronautics, non – flammable and poorly soluble. It is a semiconductor that absorbs light and forms hydroxyl radicals when contacted with water. This phenomenon of titanium has been used in several applications and the present review deals with the brief application of titanium dioxide.

Keywords: Anatase, Brookite, Hydroxyl radicals, Photoactivity, Rutile, Semi-conductor, Titanium dioxide
