In this study, the formation and characterization of conversion coatings modified by a sol-gel TiO2 deposit were investigated as a way to develop a new photocatalyst for water and air depollution. The conversion coating, characterised by strong interfacial adhesion, high roughness and high surface area facilitates the sol-gel deposition of titania and enhances its adhesion to the substrate. The conversion treatment is carried out in an acid solution. Observation by Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) reveals a rough surface with pores and cavities. According to SIMS measurements, the thickness of the initial conversion layer is evaluated at about 1.5 μm. On this pre-functionalised support, the titanium dioxide was deposited by the sol-gel method. The roughness measurements coupled with SIMS analysis allowed a precise evaluation of the surface state of the final layers. The coating consists of two layers: a TiO2 outer layer and an inner layer containing iron chromium oxides. Characterization by X-ray diffraction (XRD) showed the existence of the TiO2 anatase structure as the main compound.
