Scientific interest in TiO2-based materials has exponentially grown in the last few decades. Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) and Its Applications introduces the main physicochemical properties of TiO2 which are the basis of its applications in various fields. While the basic principles of the TiO2 properties have been the subject of various previous publications, this book is mainly devoted to TiO2 applications.

The book includes contributions written by experts from a wide range of disciplines in order to address titanium dioxide's utilization in energy, consumer, materials, devices, and catalytic applications. The various applications identified include: photocatalysis, catalysis, optics, electronics, energy storage and production, ceramics, pigments, cosmetics, sensors, and heat transfer.

Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) and Its Applications is suitable for a wide readership in the disciplines of materials science, chemistry, and engineering in both academia and industry.

Francesco Parrino Assistant Professor, Department of Industrial Engineering, University of Trento, Trento, Italy. Francesco Parrino is an Assistant Professor of Chemistry at the University of Trento, Italy. He graduated cum laude in Chemical Engineering from the University of Palermo in 2005 and got a PhD in Inorganic Chemistry from the Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-N�rnberg, Germany, in 2009. His research activity deals with the preparation and characterization of photocatalysts for degradation of pollutants and for green synthesis of organic molecules. His scientific production conjugates mechanistic and fundamental aspects of heterogeneous photocatalysis with engineering issues for industrial applications. He has authored approximately 80 joint papers in collaboration with scientists from all over the world and several communications for international conferences on these topics. Leonardo Palmisano Professor of Chemistry, Department of Engineering, Universita di Palermo, Sicily, Italy. Leonardo Palmisano was born in Termini Imerese, Italy, in 1950. He obtained his B.Sc. degree in Chemistry cum laude in
1973 from the University of Palermo. He was a full professor of Chemistry in the Department of Engineering, University of
Palermo, since 2000, and although he has now retired, he continues to carry out research. His scientific work mainly focuses
on heterogeneous photocatalysis, such as preparation, characterization of many bulk and surface techniques, and testing
of various types of bare and doped polycrystalline photocatalysts. He has collaborated with many scientists worldwide,
producing joint papers in international journals (~350), many scientific and didactical books, and five patents. He is editorin-
chief of the Journal of Photocatalysis and a member of the editorial boards of European Journal of Inorganic Chemistry,
