Summary:

We investigated the application of titania nanotubes arrays in the form of powders and membranes for water filtration and separation, and for employment in high-performance liquid chromatography. Such membranes have been successfully employed in photocatalytic filtration processes, and attachment of ligands such as C18 for custom separation needs have been also demonstrated.
