Abstract
Novel, visible light activated, photocatalytic self-decontamination agents will be developed during this proposed Phase I SBIR effort. These photocatalysts will be heterogeneously supported upon various high surface area particles and by judicious blending of various particle size distributions & morphologies, a decontaminant will be produced; exhibiting controlled atmospheric dispersability & settling characteristics. This will utlimately result in a weapons payload having precise, controllable CB agent areal neutralization abilities.
