Disclosed is a method for producing metal oxide particles having high crystallinity and a small primary particle diameter. The method for producing the metal oxide particles according to the present invention comprises: a step of providing an aqueous dispersion comprising a water-soluble transition metal complex and water-dispersible organic polymer particles, wherein the water-soluble transition metal complex comprises one transition metal ion selected from a titanium ion, a tantalum ion, and a niobium ion; as well as a hydrophobic complexing agent and a hydrophilic complexing agent both being coordinated with the transition metal ion; drying the aqueous dispersion to produce a dried body; and firing the dried body.


A touch detection device capable of operation by a light touch, and of preventing false operations even when used in water handling equipment includes a sensing portion for sensing contact by a target object; a vibration excitation element attached to this sensing portion, a drive circuit for exciting vibration in the sensing portion, and a contact determining circuit for determining whether a target object is contacting a sensing portion based on vibration of the sensing portion after stopping the application of an AC voltage to the vibration excitation element by this drive circuit.

A flush toilet is provided wherein at least a portion of the exterior part of an exterior member installed on a rim portion can be easily installed and registered at the height of the rim outer wall upper sloped surface, and seen from the toilet lateral direction, the border between at least a part of the exterior part of the exterior member and the rim outer wall upper sloped surface appears as a single aligned straight line, imparting an aesthetic impression to the user. The rim portion (46) of the flush toilet (1) includes a rim outer wall upper sloped surface (56a) being positioned in an outside of an upper region of the rim outer wall portion (56), and at least a portion of the exterior part of the exterior member is disposed at the height of the rim outer wall upper sloped surface (56a).


Problem: To provide a discharge valve apparatus able to be disposed on a flush toilet with a relatively low silhouette by shortening the length of the valve body main shaft and lowering the height of the discharge valve apparatus. Solution Means: A discharge valve apparatus having: a small-flush float mechanism and a large-flush float mechanism; wherein the valve body main shaft includes a single shared projecting portion which locks to the large-flush cam lock portion when the required amount of pull-up for the large-flush mode has been pulled up, and locks to the small-flush cam lock portion when the amount of pull-up required for the small-flush mode has been pulled up.

Provided by the present invention is a photocatalytic coating composition which can express excellent visibility during application work and further can, owing to its excellent physical properties, form a homogeneous photocatalyst coated film having uniform thickness on a surface of a substrate. The photocatalytic coating composition which is basic and comprises photocatalyst particles, a basic dye, a layered silicate, and a dispersion medium. The basic dye enhances visibility of the part where the photocatalytic coating composition is applied so that the applied part can be easily distinguished from the unapplied part by the difference in appearance. After application work, color of the basic dye disappears by photolysis with a solar light or by decomposition with a photocatalyst. The layered silicate suppresses color change of the basic dye over time and stably keep color tone of the same.
