Nano-TiO2 photocatalysis technology is a new environmental pollutant purification technology, but its application is very extensive. This paper introduces the photocatalytic properties of nano-TiO2, and summarizes the research progress of nano-TiO2 in industrial wastewater, marine pollution, solid waste degradation, air purification and sterilization. At the same time, it is pointed out that the nano-TiO2 photocatalytic technology has not fully reached the practical application level, and the development trend of nano-TiO2 photocatalytic materials is prospected. Photocatalytic oxidation (PCO) using nanomaterials is a promising technology for removing pollutants, especially in deodorization, degradation of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and sterilization. The mechanism of nanometer photocatalysis was reviewed in this paper. The influence factors including initial concentration of pollutants, reaction time, light intensity, humidity, surface area and catalyst activity were discussed. Furthermore, the application in photocatalytic removal of gas phase contaminants was summarized, and the future development of its application was proposed based on the existing problems.
