Nucleation of octahedral titanate crystals using waste anodic electrolyte from the anodization of TiO2 nanotubes

Abstract

This study aims to explore the structure of a yellowish electrolyte by-product that is obtained via the chemical recycling of post Ti-anodized electrolyte containing ethylene glycol and H2O2. The yellowish by-product was identified as highly crystalline ammonium oxofluorotitanate, (NH4)3TiOF5. Based on the evidence, it is deduced that the nucleation process is triggered by the use of the strong oxidizing agent, H2O2. Indeed, the anodization–nucleation process of the titanate crystals was captured.
