Titanium dioxide film as a stable material plays an important role in photocatalytic degradation of pollutants. One of the ways to improve photocatalytic efficiency is to increase the active sites on the semiconductor surface. Photolithography is a manufacturing technique for controlling precisely micrographics on surface. Here grating-structured, square-structured and hexagon-structured TiO2 films were prepared by photolithography and the effects of various surface structures on photocatalysis were studied. It was demonstrated that the photocatalytic activity of TiO2 film was not always improved as the surface area increased. The micro-patterned surface would also impede the mass transfer in the process of photocatalysis. (C) 2019 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
