  • Nanocoating on buildings releases potentially toxic particles to the air

    Weathering and abrasion are reported to cause titanium dioxide nanoparticles to escape from a self-cleaning coating for buildings. These particles may be toxic to humans and wildlife. The researchers have developed three indicators from the test results to help predict levels of nanoparticle release from these coatings. Photocatalytic coatings containing nano-sized particles of titanium dioxide ...
