Titanium Dioxide Raspberry Solar Cell, Video Demonstration

INDUSTRY, MINERALS, PRODUCTS

Photovoltaic cells, also called solar cells, are devices that create electricity from light. The most common type is made from silicon in a process similar to the way computer chips are made and requires large expensive factories.One possible alternative to silicon cells is dye-sensitized cells, which are less efficient, but are far less expensive to manufacture. The dye absorbs light and transfers the excited electrons to the titanium dioxide. The titanium dioxide semiconductor material separates the charge. The redox couple completes the circuit. In this lab, we will use raspberry juice to construct a simple dye-sensitized solar cell and measure the electricity the cell produces.

Innovating... TiO2- Color Hybrid Pigments

Unique, Beige and Gray Colored TiO2 Pigments offer formulation cost savings for paints, coatings and plastics

Titanium Dioxide or TiO2 is the most widely used prime pigment in paints, coatings, plastics, paper and many other products. Typically TiO2 provides opacity and whiteness to end products. HITOX® and TIOPREM® (heat stable for high temperature applications), however, are unique beige and gray colored Rutile TiO2 pigments. They occupy a marketing niche as high quality, color pigments that offer cost savings by replacing some of the more expensive color pigments as well as white TiO2 in a broad range of color formulations. HITOX® and TIOPREM® are commonly used by major international paint and plastics manufacturers. Uses include paints and coatings (architectural, industrial, metal finishes, powder coating, coil backers, primers and wood coatings), sealants, floor tiles, PVC and plastics master batch.
