  • Abstract Titanium dioxide (TiO2) photocatalysts have attracted great attention as alternative concept to aid in the purification of water and air. TiO2 photocatalysts generate free radicals when illuminated by lights having wavelength shorter than 385 nm. These radicals are able to attack bacteria, and may therefore be efficacious in reducing bacterial pollution. In this study, a highly sensitive method for the evaluation of the photoinduced disinfection of a commercial TiO2-contained coating under a household fluorescent light irradiation was developed. Enterococcus faecium, Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, E.coli, and Candida albicans were suspended in 4% (w/v) glycerol in PBS and smeared on a surface containing TiO2. During irradiation for up to 90 min the decay of microbial viability nearly followed the first order kinetics. The rate constant k (blank/TiO2) in h-1 for these strains were 0.193/1.760, 1.407/1.973, 0.309/2.613, 0.847/2.573 and 1.220/2.107, respectively. The bactericidal effect of TiO2 in different particle size was also investigated. As the TiO2 particle decreased in size, bactericidal effect increased. Furthermore, the TiO2 coatings irradiated by the household fluorescent light and UVA were compared in bactericidal efficacy against S. aureus.
