Investigating the Effects of Photocatalytic Cementitious Material on NO

Photocatalytic cementitious materials are useful in changing environmental properties and may be useful in simultaneously decreasing air pollution. This research seeks to understand how the chemicals in car exhaust are converted over photocatalytic cement materials in an effort to ultimately enhance the conversion of air pollutants to less harmful gases in the presence of light. The cement-based materials have been constructed, and the chemistry of air pollutant transformation will be studied using Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). Upon completion, this project can impact urban environments, through the simultaneous mitigation of air pollution and control of the urban heat island
