Abstract Owing to the inherent advantages of nanostructured TiO2 photocatalysts, including high photocatalytic activity, strong oxidation power, low cost, environmental benignity and excellent stability, TiO2 photocatalyts have recently attracted extensive attention from scientific researchers, technology developers and investors for use in sensing applications. The TiO2 sensors can be used for lab-based analyses, on-line and on-site determination of organic pollutants in wastewater. This work reviews the application of TiO2 nanomaterials in photocatalytic and photoelectrocatalytic monitoring of aggregative organic parameters such as total organic carbon (TOC) and chemical oxygen demand (COD), as well as individual organic compounds in aqueous solution.
