|dc.description.abstract||TiO2 nanopowder with a large surface area and high crystallinity was synthesized by a thermal decomposition process. The physicochemical properties of the prepared powders were examined by X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy and nitrogen adsorption–desorption isotherms. The nanocrystallites of the prepared powerswere considerably smaller than those of the commercial photocatalyst (Degussa, P25), and the particles had a dense polyhedral structure. In addition, the particles had a mainly disordered mesoporous structure with a pore volume that varied according to the pore size in the range of 2–20 nm. The photocatalytic activity of the prepared photocatalystwas obviously higher than that of P25 on the photodegradation of gaseous nitrogen oxides under UV254+185 nm lampirradiation. Above 40% relative humidity, the NOx removal efficiency of the prepared photocatalystwas 10% higher than that of P25. Furthermore, a suitable relative humidity and longer residence time were found to enhance the photocatalytic oxidation of gaseous nitrogen oxides by UV254+185 nm lamp irradiation and TiO2 nanoparticles.||-|
