Using continuous coating with Si-alkoxide as a binder, Cs2.5H0.5PW12O40 (Cs2.5) powder was prepared and immobilized onto a Pyrex glass plate. The Cs2.5 coating possessed an acid site on the film surface. Translucent TiO2-Cs2.5 hybrid films were prepared by laminating TiO2 films with holes on the Cs2.5 coating using phase-separation of alkoxide. Photocatalytic decomposition of 1,4-dioxane in water revealed that the holes serve as adsorption fields for ethylene glycol diformate, an intermediate with poor affinity to TiO2. The TiO2-Cs2.5 hybrid films produced by this process are candidates for purification of water containing several chemicals with a slow decomposition rate in photocatalysis.
