Puripot's photocatalyst can have effects such as decomposition and decomposition of pollutants, self-cleaning effect, sterilization and disinfection, and deodorization. In addition, it is completely harmless to the human body, and the photocatalyst unit inside the product can be used semi-permanently and the effect lasts.

Puripot does not filter contaminated air, but decomposes it using photocatalytic technology, so there is no cost to replace the filter. On the other hand, electricity bills vary slightly depending on the Puripot model, even if it runs 24 hours a day, it is around 1,000~2,000 won per month. (Progressive tax not applied)

Puripot decomposes and purifies volatile organic compounds (VOC) that cause sick house syndrome, such as formaldehyde, toluene, and benzene, which are first-class carcinogens by continuously generating active oxygen that acts as a strong oxidizing agent. Decomposition and purification of indoor air VOC can help prevent skin diseases, asthma, rhinitis, and sleep disorders caused by sick house syndrome. There are many causes of atopic skin disease, a typical phenomenon of sick house syndrome, but it is found that volatile organic compounds (VOC) continuously emanating from various high-end building interior materials such as wallpaper, wood, and furniture induce an allergic reaction to the skin.

Puripot is a photocatalytic technology that uses light and nanotech without a filter to decompose and remove harmful substances that cause the sick house syndrome, such as volatile organic compounds (VOC) in the indoor environment.

VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) are 'volatile organic compounds' in Korean and are a generic term for organic compounds in gaseous form that are mixed in the atmosphere we breathe every day. It is a substance that causes photochemical reaction in the atmosphere to produce oxidizing substances such as ozone, causing photochemical smog. VOCs include toluene, formaldehyde, benzene, acetylene, and gasoline, and are used in manufacturing a wide variety of industrial products such as solvents used in industries.

VOCs are serious air pollutants and are mostly classified as carcinogens. Sick house syndrome is a phenomenon that causes headaches, rhinitis, serious skin problems, and sleep problems in children with weak immunity due to VOCs emitted from the wallpaper or furniture of a newly occupied apartment. Puripot's photocatalytic deodorization function has excellent performance in decomposing harmful VOCs into water and carbon dioxide that are harmless to the human body.

Various harmful substances and bacteria are basically composed of 'molecules.' These molecules are small enough to not be filtered out by HEPA filters, ranging in size from 1/100 to 1/10 of the ultrafine dust.

Bacteria and viruses have DNA, so they can replicate themselves, so we call them living things. Since the photocatalytic reaction takes place against 'molecules', it decomposes any harmful substances and bacteria to make water and carbon dioxide that are not harmful to the human body.

Puripot decomposes all organic matter into carbon dioxide and water by continuously generating active oxygen that acts as a strong oxidizing action.

Therefore, it has a sterilizing function because it oxidizes and decomposes microorganisms composed of organic matter.

Micro-organisms are largely divided into viruses, bacteria (virus), and fungi. In general, microorganisms are bacteria, and those that are much smaller than bacteria and can be identified with an electron microscope are called viruses.

Therefore, free radicals that can decompose organic matter can prevent infection of deadly bacteria by decomposing corona viruses, such as MERS, SARS, and Ebola.

Ozone is a harmful substance that is powerful enough to destroy the DNA structure of the human body. It is mainly made with a UV lamp or an anion generator, but Puripot does not use such electronic components at all.

Puripot is a product that applies its own ‘visible light photocatalyst technology' to fundamentally block ozone generation, which was a chronic problem of UV or negative ion air purifiers. Therefore, it does not generate ozone and does not emit ultraviolet rays (UV) that are harmful to the eyes, so it can be used indoors by pregnant women, babies, or the elderly with confidence.

The air purifying material produced by Puripot through the photocatalytic reaction of titanium dioxide visible light is Hydroxyl Radical. It is a terminology used in the field of radical chemistry, but it is also used as a relatively easy expression for the general public as ‘active oxygen.’

Hydroxyl Radical is a highly active chemical substance, and due to its instability, it is a strongly oxidizing air purifying substance that attacks and decomposes other substances (virus, bacteria, VOC, etc.). However, Hydroxyl radicals have a very unstable (radical) property that disappears after about a few hundred thousandths of a second after being generated inside the Puripot. In other words, the possibility of being discharged to the outside of the Puripot after instantaneous air purification function is virtually 0%. In conclusion, Puripot's free radicals are safe because they are not exposed to the human body at all.

Photocatalytic technology is a technology that continuously generates innovative air purifying substances that remove odors, molds, viruses, and bacteria around life using light and nano-tech. Like photosynthesis, which purifies forests by generating oxygen as a catalyst using chlorophyll when exposed to light, photocatalysts cause oxidation and reduction reactions using ultraviolet rays from the sun or fluorescent lamps as an energy source, resulting in various harmful substances and bacteria.

It decomposes the back into substances that are harmless to the human body and decomposes and removes harmful substances that cause sick house syndrome, such as odor and volatile organic compounds (VOC). A catalyst refers to a substance that changes the chemical properties of other substances by causing a redox reaction without changing itself. Puripot is a photocatalyst raw material that combines titanium dioxide (TiO2) and platinum (Pt), which are harmless to the human body.

When titanium dioxide (TiO2) receives light, it generates electrons (e-) with electricity and holes (h+) with electricity, just like the principle of a solar cell. Holes (h+) form hydroxide ( OH Radical), which has a much stronger oxidizing action than chlorine or ozone for sterilization, and electrons generate oxygen adsorbed on the photocatalyst as oxygen ions.

Photocatalyst technology uses this principle to oxidize and decompose pollutants and odors in the air and transform them into water and carbon dioxide that are harmless to the human body.

Puripot's main functions are deodorization and sterilization. However, if we look at the causes of odors in the air, they are generated by harmful gases from the living environment, so they not only catch odors but also play a role of fundamentally improving air quality by removing harmful substances.

Fine dust may cause rhinitis, but more importantly, may also cause various indoor harmful gases that are not visible. Fine dust in the air can penetrate into the interior when the door is opened or closed in the house, but in general, indoors are not as high as the outside. If you need an air purifier that mainly removes fine dust, a product with a HEPA filter is recommended. However, the HEPA filter is mainly for dust manure, and its ability to deodorize and remove harmful gases is relatively low.

Most air purifiers are intended to remove dust. However, if the dust filter is not replaced in a timely manner, the air purification performance decreases as time passes. Rather, if the proper indoor temperature and humidity conditions are met due to accumulated dust, many bacteria may grow.

On the other hand, Puripot is a photocatalytic technology that uses light and nanotech without a filter to continuously generate innovative air-cleaning substances that remove odors, molds, viruses, and bacteria around life. It decomposes into substances that are harmless to the human body and decomposes and removes harmful substances that cause sick house syndrome, such as odor and volatile organic compounds (VOC). In addition, since there is no filter to be replaced, the air purification performance is always maintained continuously.
