A high-molecular-weight perfluoropolyether (PFPE-YR) and a perfluoropolyether containing ammonium phosphate (PFPE-F10) have been evaluated as fluorinated coating for high-surface-area titanium oxides. Coated nano-TiO2 shows hydrophobic properties and excellent buoyancy on water. In addition to photoactivity toward the degradation of toluene in gas phase, specific trial analyses have been completed to estimate the modified titanium oxide features. Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET) analysis for the surface area determination, ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy (UV-Vis) for the material electronic band gap, high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM), x-ray diffraction (XRD), and x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) for the morphology, structure, and surface composition, respectively, and water contact angle and infrared (IR) analysis have been performed to estimate the wettability and stability of coated titanium.
