    Photocatalytic Decomposition of Viruses, Bacteria, Fungi and Odors into Harmless Atoms and Molecules
    Author(s): Pavel Osmera*

    Photocatalysis breaks down viruses (including coronavirus and all itscurrent and future mutations) into harmless atoms and molecules. The activated surface of titanium dioxide (TiO2) removes binding electrons from the structures using UV light, which breaks down the structure of the virus into harmless molecules and atoms. UV light with a wavelength of about 365 nm (band A) is used to activate the photocatalytic surface, in contrast to hard radiation with a wavelength of about 200 nm (band C). Hard radiation kills living structures but does not break down into simpler structures... Read More»
