    Abstract: In this study, electrophoretic deposition (EPD) technique was used to deposit titanium dioxide (TiO2) thin films on conducting glass substrates for application in water purification from organic contaminants. Phenol was used as a model pollutant. The EPD suspension related parameters and deposition conditions were first optimized for good quality f... Show More
