Synthesis of hierarchical anatase TiO2nanostructures with tunable morphology and enhanced photocatalytic activity

Author affiliations

Abstract

A facile one-pot method to prepare three-dimensional hierarchical nanostructures of titania with good control over their morphologies without the use of hydrofluoric acid is developed. The reaction is performed under microwave irradiation conditions in pure water, and enables enhanced photocatalytic activity. This study indicates that photocatalytic activity depends not only on the surface area but also on the morphology of the titania.
