October 29, visible light photocatalytic materials under anti-bacterial properties of semiconductor test method at ISO standards working group meeting was held in Chengdu. It is reported that this meeting will finalize all the details of the standard, and is expected later this year formally adopted by the International Organization for Standardization. Industry sources, the kinds of new materials brilliant future market prospects, even beyond the most promising fuel cells for vehicles.
“In fact photocatalytic material was first used by Japanese scientists discovered in the eighties of last century, the original idea was for the conversion of light energy, but failed, then according to the properties of the materials to consider using it to break down the contamination.” Physical and Chemical Technology of Chinese Academy of Sciences Fang is a researcher at a gold standard in this specific member of the working group of experts, she told reporters that the Chinese consumers really come into contact with photocatalytic material, or because of SARS in 2003, we pay more attention to anti-bacterial disinfection, photocatalytic materials related products should only be transported was introduced into China.
According to reports, after Japan had led the development of photocatalytic materials in four standards, but are working under standard UV light. “At present photocatalytic materials have been developed to work under visible light conditions, the second generation, even in the micro-thermal conditions to work under the scope of its application value and greatly improve.” Fang said that only the King, the second generation of photocatalytic materials with international standards the drafting by the Chinese for the head unit, “in order to participate in international standards, we put a lot of effort, it also means that China will in the future market and products for many years and has more right to speak, which is China’s development The benefits of new materials technology industry is needless to say. ”
The meeting will be held in Chengdu, to determine all the details of the draft standards, and then at the end of formal adoption of the International Organization for Standardization. “In addition to antibacterial properties, this material also self-cleaning, water purification and air purification and other international standards to develop the other three. We are also actively involved in the drafting work.” It is reported that once the standards are formally adopted, will be the first time the leading light in China the drafting of international standards catalytic materials, but also standards for the first time led by the drafting of the country outside of Japan.
Photocatalyst in the end what to do with, consumers may not know. In this regard, members of units involved in the drafting of the standard U.S. Environmental Materials Science and Technology, Sichuan Canal Heming Xing, general manager, told reporters, as long as the place where people can use to be, the future of the new environmental protection materials market even more than the current most promising the available fuel cell vehicle market.
“Let me give a simple example, in the car the smell of smoke residue, etc. is not easily removed, but the use of this new material technology, products can be solved within a few minutes, and it is not simply cover up the smell, but to direct decomposition of harmful pollutants into harmless substances. “Heming Xing, told reporters, including the new house from the decoration and furniture to the secondary pollution, etc. can be easily resolved, in addition also used in water treatment and so many ways,” With people’s living standards increasing, more and more attention to environmental protection, this new environmentally friendly industrial materials market will be immeasurable. “
