Solid state precursor strategy for synthesizing hollow TiO2 boxes with a high percentage of reactive {001} facets exposed

Author affiliations

Abstract

Three-dimensional, hollow, anatase TiO2 boxes, each was enclosed by six single-crystalline TiO2 plates exposed with highly reactive {001} facets, were facilely obtained by calcining a cubic TiOF2 solid precursor at 500–600 °C. The formation of such particular nanostructures is attributed to the hard self-template restriction and the adsorption of F ions from the TiOF2.
