Titanium dioxide (TiOi) has a wide range of practical applications. For most of these applications, it is necessary to control the photoactivity of Ti02. In the case of sunblocks, Ti02 photoactivity needs to be minimised to remove any potentially harmful effects due to free radical generation on the surface. For waste water remediation owever, Ti02 activity needs to be maximised. Previous work has suggested that certain 'active' sites on the rutile surface may be onsible for the majority of rutile's photoactivity. This thesis aims to develop the understanding of these active sites by depositing various inorganic materials onto the TiOi surface and measuring changes in photoactivity.
