Molekule's technology uses low energy UV LED light to catalyze this reaction. The UV light is absorbed and the blue light is emitted as a result.
The technology inside Molekule, called Photo Electrochemical Oxidation (PECO), works at the molecular level to break down indoor air pollutants. Light shines on a filter membrane coated with nanoparticles, which starts a catalytic reaction on the surface of the filter. This destroys pollutants of any size.
We acknowledge some people are sensitive to light while they sleep. As a result, we created Dark Mode, which turns off the LED inside the device. We recommend using this mode only as necessary, since light is essential for the full benefits of the technology. In Dark Mode, your Nano-Filter will function similarly to a conventional filter that captures pollutants in the air. Once the light is switched on, it will destroy pollutants in the air.
