abstract In this work, the joint photocatalytical and bactericidal potential, under UV radiation, of titania and silver nano powders dispersed in PMMA and deposited on porous ceramic substrates (40 and 80 ppi) by dip- and spray-coating, were investigated in low power consumption water purification reactors, using the Escherichia coli (E. coli) as reference pathogen. The results show the effect of different reactor morphologies (porosity, permeability, mechanical strength) on the bactericidal efficiency. (C) 2015 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
