Under a ﬂuorescent lamp of Anti-virus 1000 lx, λ > 410 nm, the virus was eradicated to more than 99% within 30 min. Since this photocatalyst can be Visible-light-induced photocatalyst used for coating plastics, wall papers and walls, it would be desirable to use this photocatalyst to reduce viral TiO transmission via droplets and aerosols as well as surface contact for disinfection. 1. Introduction potent oxidants and nonselective in reactivity for both the oxidation of organic substances and the inactivation of bacteria and viruses (Fig. 1). Since titanium dioxide was ﬁrst used in photocatalytic reactions for A new human inﬂuenza virus, H1N1, has originated in Mexico and degrading contaminants in water and air by Fujishima and Honda spread all over the world in
