H2O TITANIUM

The h2o.TITANIUM is an innovative technology whose efficiency is based on the generation of enormous quantities of hydroxyl radicals (· OH), highly oxidizing agents (only exceeded by fluorine), with a high reaction rate (10e9-10e12 that of O3 ) and whose life is of nanoseconds (space in which they combine or happen to form water again).

The production process of these hydroxyl free radicals (· OH ) is based on the excitation of titanium dioxide through the application of an energy higher than the band gap energy , so that electron-hole pairs are generated as a consequence of the promotion of electrons from the valence band to the driving band .

In the generated electron-hole pairs, the electrons react with water (H 2 O), with hydroxide ions (OH – ) and molecular oxygen (O 2 ) to form the free radical · OH .
