Titania monolith and its granular particles are porous material having a dual-pore structure of through pore and small pore whose skeletons are composed of 100% titanium oxide. While having the excellent flow path characteristic of the monolith, it shows high strength derived from titanium oxide.
It can also be applied to a purpose requiring corrosion resistance such as under strong alkali which could not be applied to date. Moreover, it shows a photocatalytic action peculiar to titanium oxide, it can also control the particle diameter and pore size freely while maintaining a high specific surface area, so it is a material with high potential that can be applied as a highly efficient reaction medium.
