Know the applications and recent improvements in Titanium Dioxide
Titanium dioxide, also known as titania, is a naturally occurring substance that is used as a pigment for paints and also has applications in cosmetic, food, and other industries. The mineral has exceptional UV resistant properties and is a good UV absorbent.
Applications of Titanium Dioxide in detail:
In food industry, titanium dioxide is not only used as a pigment, but also as a color, texture enhancer, and whitener in most food products. In pharmaceutical industry, titania is largly used in sunscreens to avoid UVA and UVB radiations. It is also a common pigment for pharma products, such as tablet coatings, gelatin, syrups, and capsules. Cosmetic industry uses titanium dioxide in lipstick, creams, powders, and ointments.
In the previous years, FDA approved the titanium dioxide to be used as a coloring agent in drugs, food products, cosmetic items, and others. Nevertheless, there are still few restrictions on using nanoparticles of the targeted substance due to its safety in cosmetic products like sunscreens. According to recent studies, researchers suggest toxic effects of using titanium dioxide, besides ongoing research in the domain.
Apart from colorant and other roles of the mineral, rubber, plastic, and adhesives also contain titanium dioxide. It helps in reducing the brittleness, cracking, and fading in plastic items. Since plastic and other products are easily cracked after a period due to light exposure, titanium dioxide plays a major role here.

Recent improvements in Titanium Dioxide:
Titanium dioxide is gaining popularity as an excellent catalyst among end use industries. Even though the mineral has wide range of applications in photoelectrochemical and photocatalysis, researchers are continuously studying for more interesting discoveries for additional reactions. Lately, studies have found titanium dioxide to play the role of a catalyst in hydrodeoxygenation, hydrogenation, esterification/transesterification, water and gas shift reaction, green organic synthesis, and more. This is due to its high metal-supportive interaction (SMSI), strong redox reaction at minimal temperature, acidity, and great chemical stability.
Owing to several efforts for enhancing the light-visibility photocatalytic with the help of titanium dioxide, the mineral is used as a photocatalyst due to multiple applications in environment and energy domains. Still, absorption edge and fast charge capacity restrict the photocatalytic competency of titanium dioxide under visible-light radiation. Moreover, investigations are being made in the domain to overcome the drawbacks of titanium and ultimately improve its photocatalytic efficiency under visible light. The present synthesis techniques used for elaborating numerous nanostructures of titania-based materials and improvements in the visible photocatalytic efficiency are witnessing great research including rise in popularity among users.
Another expected advancement in titanium dioxide is found in the environment field. Organic waste and pesticides comprise several eco-pollutants, which are largely distributed in surrounding due to human activities. Absorptive elimination and photocatalytic reduction of these impurities from water have risen as cost effective and energy technologies. Nevertheless, improvements in oxidation technologies are significantly gaining familiarity as an optimal method for treating water. This method is capable of reducing large number of organic contaminants. Photocatalytic is proved superior and improved technique for oxidation to lighten water pollution issues. Titanium dioxide is expected to be one of the best photocatalyst due to features, such as cost-efficient, easy immobilization, and superior oxidizing capabilities.
