Concrete, mortar and plaster using titanium dioxide nanoparticles: applications in pollution control, self-cleaning and photo sterilization

M. Vittoriadiamanti and M.P. Pedeferri,     Politecnico di Milano, Italy

Abstract:

Many advances have been made in understanding the mechanisms of TiO2 photoactivity and in developing its potential in addressing environmental issues. This chapter provides a short overview of these mechanisms, focusing on construction materials (mortar, plaster, concrete) modified through the addition of titanium dioxide nanoparticles. Examples will be given of laboratory experiments carried out in recent years, and of current applications in the built environment; attention will also be paid to the international standards ...
