Abstract

For collection of particulate matter (PM) contained in gas phase, we fabricated water film device to transfer PM2.5 from gas to liquid phase, continuously. The device had millimeter-scale channel and long-term stable superhydrophilic surface formed by titanium oxide (TiO 2 )-covered zinc oxide (ZnO) nanowires to make a parallel flow of gas and liquid phases. The superhydrophilic surface al-lowed to form stable liquid phase within the channel and collect PM2.5 from gas phase. This device would be a new platform for collecting harmful PM from the air and keeping air condition clean.
