Abstract

In the present work, Fe3+ doped TiO2 coatings on glass substrates were prepared by dip-coating from a sol-gel solution. The influence of the dopant concentration on the structure, optical, photocatalytic and photothermal properties of the films was studied. The results obtained have shown a strong correlation between the catalytic properties and the amount of iron dopant and the temperature of the thermal treatment.
