6. Before treatment in oxygen at 670 K, the particles are clearly visible on the surface. However, during oxygen treatment, new layers of titania grow up around the nanoparticles until they eventually completely cover them. 8 The storage occurs by oxidation of reduced Ti3+ species which reside in the bulk of the sample, but that are pulled to the surface during oxidation. This preferentially occurs around the metal particle because oxygen dissociation occurs fast there, but occurs only slowly on the titania itself.

2 Injection-Molded Polypropylene Reinforced by Long Glass Fibers Injection-molded module carriers have been developed since the early 1990s. In 2002, a Japanese automotive maker introduced injection-molded carriers without steel reinforcement. This system has then been applied to a front-end module and door module carriers for a worldwide series of production cars. A semi-finishing product step is not necessary for an injection-molded part. In addition, injection-molded parts have a high level of design flexibility.
