Showa Denko develops titanium oxide fine particles for photocatalysis

TOKYO, JAPAN: Showa Titanium Co Ltd, a consolidated subsidiary of Showa Denko KK (SDK), has developed titanium oxide fine particles for use in UV-light-responsive photocatalyst with highest-level activity. The product has been developed as part of a project sponsored by the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO). Showa Titanium is conducting tests for volume production at its pilot plant, aiming to commercialize the product by the end of 2013.

Showa Titanium has developed decahedral titanium oxide fine particles with minimized defect, by applying its gas-phase technology to produce titanium oxide nanoparticles for ceramic capacitors. In addition to promoting the use of the new product in higher-activity photocatalyst, Showa Titanium will aim to develop new applications in the area of functional materials, using the advantage of ‘fine particles with minimized defect.’
