Titanium dioxide or titania (TiO2) has been investigated as a potential photo catalyst which activated by ultraviolet light to decompose organic material. Because of its self cleaning ability, Titanium dioxide mostly used as a main material for sterilizing, deodorization, self cleaning, air purification and water purification material. This paper will explain the fabrication of micro porous water filter using titanium dioxide as the main material. Water purification process will happen in both chemical and physical way by using photo catalyst and filtration process. Titania is used as the main material for this filter while silicon dioxide (SiO2) is added as a nanoscale filler. Since both materials could handle a high thermal treatment, they will be heated inside furnace by using simple heating method to create micro porous water filter.
