Template synthesis of well-aligned titanium dioxide nanotubes

Template synthesis of well-aligned titanium dioxide nanotubes
Template synthesis of well-aligned titanium dioxide nanotubes
TiO2 nanotubes of the anatase form have been synthesized by sol-gel chemical method using anodic aluminum oxide (AAO) as a template. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and X-ray diffraction were used to investigate the structure and morphology of the TiO2 nanotubes. The results showed that TiO2 nanotubes obtained are highly ordered and uniform. The diameter and length of the obtained nanotubes were determined by the pore size and the thickness of AAOtemplate. It was found that through control of immersion time of AAO membrane in sol, both tubules and fibrils can be prepared.

Abstract

TiO2 nanotubes of the anatase form have been synthesized by sol-gel chemical method using anodic aluminum oxide (AAO) as a template. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and X-ray diffraction were used to investigate the structure and morphology of the TiO2 nanotubes. The results showed that TiO2 nanotubes obtained are highly ordered and uniform. The diameter and length of the obtained nanotubes were determined by the pore size and the thickness of AAOtemplate. It was found that through control of immersion time of AAO membrane in sol, both tubules and fibrils can be prepared.
