Abstract

In this work, we optically investigate and characterize the photocatalytic recovery of contaminated TiO 2 nanoparticles of different sizes that are incorporated in solgel films to study the size effect. We demonstrate significant improvement in the optical efficiency of the photocatalytic nanoparticles as we reduce the particle size.
