Correlation between structural and physical properties and photocatalytic activities for five kinds of reactions of 35 titania samples was obtained through multivariable analyses: photoeatalytie activities were empirically reproduced by a linear combination of six properties with fair reliability. While a portion of results could be interpreted using a conventional mechanism, significant activity dependence on properties, not disclosed yet, was suggested.
