Initial studies of the photocatalyst has been developed from the field relating to the conversion and storage of solar energy. Recently, the study of the various organic decomposition compound and the water purification and waste water treatment by ultraviolet irradiation in the presence of light or a photocatalyst are being actively investigated. In addition, the oxidized material-carbon nanotubes, graphene-nanocomposites have been studied. Such a complex is suitable as a material constituting the solar cells and photolysis nanoelectronics, including the flexible element due to thermal and chemical stability.
