Abstract: TiO2 and Fe-doped TiO2 nanoparticles, containing Fe concentrations of 0.05, 0.10 and 1.00% w/w) were synthesized through a simple sol-gel method. FTIR, XRD, XPS and XANES analyses of the Fe-doped TiO2 nanoparticles revealed the predominant presence of anatase crystalline form, as well as the incorporation of the Fe3+ ions into the crystal lattice of TiO2. The photocatalytic assessment of the Fe-doped TiO2 nanoparticles indicated that the low Fe content TiO2 nanoparticles (0.05 and 0.1 w/w %), have a positive effect on the photocatalytic degradation of Methyl Orange under the visible radiation. Moreover, FTIR monitoring of lime pastes enriched with Fe-doped TiO2, revealed that an enhancement of carbonation occurred for the undoped TiO2 and 0.05Fe doped TiO2. Therefore, the doping of TiO2 with Fe at low concentration up to 0.05% w/w resulted as the best performed both, from the photocatalytic point of view in protecting the architectural surfaces from the pollutant deposition and, in enhancing the carbonation process.
