New Material for Optical Switch: Titanium Oxide Successfully Prepared

Recently, after development of the surface of superhydrophobic/ superhydrophilicities intelligent switch with light and heat response, the Research Group of Functional Interface Materials of the Laboratory of Organic Solids of the Institute of Chemistry, CAS, once again developed a material with titanium oxide as raw material for optical switch, which is expected to have industrial application.

The relevant research result was reported in the recent issue of Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2005, 44, 5115 гн 5118.

The relevant series of research results made by this research group has attracted the attention of their international colleagues. At request, they published a specific article, systematically introduced their progress in the bionic nano interface material with special infiltration on Acc.Cem. Res. 2005,38,644.
