Photocatalytic disinfection practices have been applied for decades and attract current interest along with the developments in synthesis of novel photocatalysts. A survey based investigation was performed for elucidation of photocatalytic treatment details as well as disinfection mechanism of microorganisms. The present work brings significant information on the utilization of second generation TiO2 photo catalysts for inactivation of microorganisms typically using E. coli as the model microorganism. Special interest was devoted to the role of organic matrix either generated during treatment or as a natural component. Studies on photocatalytic disinfection were extensively reviewed and evaluated with respect to basic operational parameters related to photocatalysis, and types and properties of microorganisms investigated. Degradation mechanism and behavior of microorganisms towards reactive oxygen species during disinfection and organic matrix effects were also addressed. For successful utilization and effective assessment of visible light active photocatalysts, standard protocols for disinfection activity testing have to be set. Further improvement of the efficiency of these materials would be promising for future applications in water treatment processes. (C) 2018 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
