  • And if you're wondering if this will work on your shower door, it won't -- the coating needs ultraviolet rays from the sun to activate the photocatalytic effect.

    Science And Technology

  • Familiar semiconductors like silicon don't work in photocatalytic applications.

    Analog Science Fiction and Fact

  • Most photocatalytic work has focused instead on semiconductor _oxides_, which are stable in oxygenated water solutions.

    Analog Science Fiction and Fact

  • However, for the full photocatalytic reaction to proceed, the electrons need to get to the surface, too, so they can react with the hydrogen ions.

    Analog Science Fiction and Fact

  • By the way, using semiconductors for the photocatalytic destruction of water pollutants has also been a huge research focus over the last couple of decades.
