The Master’s Thesis is about the preparation and characterization of different systems withinTiO2-SiO2-ZnO-SnO2-Fe2O3 system. The available information about all precursors, dip-coating technique, drying and sintering as well as their preparation methods were processed in this study. In the experimental part, by the sol-gel dip-coating method the coating systems of three, four and five components sol-gel coatings on the glass substrate were obtained. Using OM, X-ray, AFM and SEM the affecting factors and concepts of coating systems, as microstructure, phase composition, surface morphology and the photocatalytic activity of resulting were investigated. The Master’s thesis consists of 95 pages, contains 52 figures, 10 tables, 1 appendix and 133 references.
