Molekule Air Purifier
Breathe easier: Molekule uses nanotechnology to break down pollutants on a molecular level. Allergens, mold, bacteria, viruses and airborne chemicals are eliminated, not just caught.

Molekule gets the job done with a light-activated PECO filter. The PECO filter works by light shining onto the filter membrane, coated with proprietary nanoparticles. This creates a catalytic reaction on the filter surface that breaks down the molecular structure of pollutants. PECO is the successor of PCO technology which works on a similar principle but is much less effective. This technology has been developed over the past 20 years at the University of Florida.

Molekule features all of these operating modes:

  • Auto: This mode takes your inputs to find an optimal running point for your room. In this mode, Molekule will maintain your room air quality tailored specifically to your environment. 
  • Boost: In Boost mode the device runs at its maximum speed. Use this mode when you’re in need of a strong clean. For example after dusting and cleaning the house with detergents. 
  • Silent: Molekule runs silently. While the speed of air flowing through the device is reduced, the device still cleans the air effectively.
  • Dark Mode: This mode turns off the light of the device for people sensitive to it while sleeping. We recommend using the mode only as necessary, since the light enables and excites the PECO-Filter, allowing for it to break down pollutants. In this mode, your PECO-Filter will function similar to a conventional filter capturing pollutants in the air. Only when the light is on, it is able to destroy pollutants from your air.
Why We Chose This
The Molekule Air Purifier is unlike other air filters because of its patented technology: Photo Electrochemical Oxidation (PECO), which works on a molecular level. Developed over the course of 20 years by research scientists, this innovative technology utilizes free radicals—the same radicals used to kill cancer cells—to oxidize pollutants. PECO’s nanotechnology is able to destroy pollutants 1,000 times smaller than those eliminated by traditional HEPA filters.
