2] and, more precisely, its phase called anatase
are both photocatalysts  and possess hydrophobic as well as UV-light induced superhydrophilic properties .
Based on grade, the titanium dioxide market has been classified into rutile and anatase
These peaks characterized that titania nanoparticles were mostly in the anatase
This compound have three crystalline phases: rutile (tetragonal structure), anatase
(octahedral structure), brookite (orthorhombic structure), which according to the requirement of the electrostatic valence rule, each oxygen atom is shared by three octahedra.
Sharp and intense peaks originated from indexed planes of (1 0 1), (1 0 3), (0 0 4), (1 1 2), (2 0 0), (1 0 5), (2 1 1), (2 0 4) and (1 1 6) of anatase
It is found in three crystalline phases: brookite (orthorhombic), anatase
(tetragonal) and rutile (tetragonal), wherein the anatase
and rutile phases are commonly used in photocatalysis, which the anatase
phase is considered the highest catalytic activity (Linsebigler, Lu, & Yates, 1995).
Therefore, preparation of anatase
phase of titania nanomaterials has attracted increasing attention and many methods have been developed, such as anodization of titanium foil [14, 15], the hydrothermal treatment of Ti[O.
2] nanoparticles, which have an anatase
crystalline phase with superior PC activity, were directly synthesized over TPU nanofibers and the coated membranes were characterized using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray diffractometry.
It produces TiO2 in two crystalline forms, rutile and anatase
to impart whiteness, brightness, opacity, and durability for products, including paints, coatings, plastics, paper, fibers, and ceramics, as well as for various specialty products.
, rutile and brookite) and perovskite (CaTi[O.
It can be classified into anatase
, rutile and brokite, of which only anatase
and rutile are commercially important.
Their topics include the nanomechanical characterization of cement-based materials, the novel synthesis of four-nanometer anatase
nanoparticles at room temperature obtained from titania nanotube structures by anodizing titanium, nanotechnology for environmental control and remediation, applications of nanotechnology in cancer, various nanostructures to enhance the efficiency of solar-photon conversions, and the convergence of nanotechnology and microbiology.
