Keywords: titanium dioxide, photocatalysis, self-cleaning

Abstract:
Titanium dioxide has often been indicated as emerging technique for environment depollution, specially in urban environments. It can be easily added to building materials, such as concrete or mortar elements, or as coating to any other façade. This paper tries to summarize the advances in this technology field and the limits it still shows.
