UNRAVELLING THE WATER CONDENSATION ON PHOTOACTIVE NANOTUBES

Researchers from Materials Science Institute of Seville (CSIC) and the ALBA Synchrotron have characterized the water condensation mechanisms on titanium dioxide photoactive nanotubes’ surfaces after UV-irradiation. Thanks to this method, the material-water interaction can be controlled, changing its properties and enabling to convert the nanotubes in either hydrophilic or hydrophobic surfaces depending on the objective. This specific feature is interesting for architecture and transport areas, to develop antifogging or antifreezing surfaces.
