Knowhow offering

TitleTitanium Dioxide nanoneedles
Knowhow is available forA simple one step process for producing pure rutile titanium dioxide nanoneedles at room temperature with high aspect ratio and high morphology control with potential applications in paints, coating, as photo catalysts, etc
SummaryA one-step electrochemical process for the synthesis of pure rutile TiO2 nanoneedles, -With high aspect ratio, at room temperature -Nanoneedles with aspect ratio of >=10 can be produced with very good control over the morphology of the resulting TiO2
Advantages-Less energy intensive (process carried out at room temperature) -Ability to synthesize phase-pure rutile TiO2 -Reduced time for synthesis (as this process avoids any formation of intermediate amorphous powder or anatase phase and hence dosen't need heat treatment to from rutile TiO2) -Easier, cheaper, quicker process (when compared to previous methods of synthesis)
