Preparation and Characterization of TiO2 Nanostructure by TiCl4 Hydrolysis with Additive NaOH

Abstract

Titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanostructures were synthesized via the hydrolysis of TiCl4 in alcohol /water solution/with sodium hydroxide solution in the ice-bath (0-5 ◦C). The particles were characterizedby using X-ray diffraction technique (XRD), spectroscopy of Ultra Violet-Visible (UV/ Visible) and infrared (FT-IR), atomic force microscope (AFM) and scanning electron microscope(SEM) analysis were used in order to gain information about the material, morphology,size and the shape of the particles.
