Darren Sun with a team of 20 has ushered in a technology revoultion with Multi-use Titanium Dioxide (TiO2).
A new wonder material can generate hydrogen, produce clean water and even create energy.
It can also desalinate water, be used as flexible water filtration membranes, help recover energy from desalination waste brine, be made into flexible solar cells and can also double the lifespan of lithium ion batteries. With its superior bacteria-killing capabilities, it can also be used to develop a new type of antibacterial bandage.
Multi-use Titanium Dioxide (TiO2)... is formed by turning titanium dioxide crystals into patented nanofibres, which can then be easily fabricated into patented flexible filter membranes which include a combination of carbon, copper, zinc or tin, depending on the specific end product needed. Titanium dioxide is a cheap and abundant material,...
Prof Sun's multi-use titanium dioxide can:
concurrently produce both hydrogen and clean water when exposed to sunlight
be made into a low-cost flexible filtration membrane that is anti-fouling
desalinate water as a high flux forward osmosis membrane
recover energy from waste desalination brine and wastewater
be made into a low-cost flexible solar cell to generate electricity
doubles battery life when used as anode in lithium ion battery
kill harmful microbial, leading to new antibacterial bandages
