Effect of Ag Loading on the Microstructure of TiO2 Electrospun Nanofibers

What is it about?

In this research work, crystalline structure, phase transformation, morphology and mean size of titanium dioxide (TiO2) electrospun nanofibers have been tailored by loading with 2.5, 5.0 and 7.5 wt.% of silver (Ag) which was followed by calcination. An interesting finding of this study is the existence of 1D nanofibers’ structure even at higher (7.5 wt.%) Ag loading, as observed by the SEM micrographs.

Why is it important?

The loading of Ag at higher concentrations in these nanofibers has not destroyed the 1D structure which posses large active surface area required for many novel applications like photocatalysis, photovoltaic, and sensing.
