Abstract This paper reviews the synthesis methods of nano titania particles and their utilization in various applications with concise discussion on the related health concerns. Owing to the efficient photocatalytic properties of nano titania particles along with high stability, super hydrophilicity and low cost, these particles are perfect candidate for the production for coatings on the surfaces of construction materials i.e. tiles, facades, wall etc. The nano titania coatings are capable of decomposing dust, dirt and organic pollutants in the presence of sunlight. These decomposed products may then easily be washed away by rinsing thus providing easy cleaning and keeps the buildings in younger or fresh look for decade.
