Abstract 

Titania (anatase polymorph) has been extensively studied as a photocatalyst for organic pollutant degradation as well as microbial inactivation. Commercially, titania has been applied only asself-cleaning coatings mostly in Japan, South Korea and Singapore. Changes in the color and texture of substrates as well as the need for ultraviolet excitation for photocatalytic activity are major limitations for commercial use of titania for antimicrobial and indoor applications. Achieving visible light activation and coating transparencycan lead to broader applications of titania as a photocatalyst. We have attempted to achieve these goals by creating a Titania–Polyhydroxy fullerene (PHF) compositecoating formulation. In this presentation,processing required for achieving the desired technical specifications, and marketing pathways necessary for commercializing laboratory innovations by a small company will be discussed.
