Research output: Chapter in book / Conference proceedingChapter in an edited book (as author)Academic researchpeer-review


This chapter focuses on the uses of nano-TiO2 particles in photocatalic application of cement mortar and concrete structure, dealing with self-cleaning, air-purifying, anti-bacteria, anti-fouling... As the future perspectives, the promising applications of nano-ZnO particles and hybridization of nano-TiO2/nano-ZnO with noble metal nanoparticles aslo are mentioned.
