Quasi-aligned TiO2 nanobelts via non-hydrothernmal Ti-H2O2 interaction.

What is it about?

Nanostructured TiO2 is effective to remove pollutants from water or air; yet its fabrications generally demand harsh conditions. This study provides a facile technique to synthesize quasi-aligned TiO2 nanobelts arrays. The synthesis route is also capable of doping certain elements in TiO2 to further enhance the photoactivity.

Why is it important?

The synthetic route developed herein is solution-based, requiring neither high cost reagents nor harsh hydrothermal conditions. The TiO2 nanobelts arrays can also find applications in various fields of green energy and environmental remediation.
