Black titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanomaterials

Author affiliations


In the past few decades, there has been a wide research interest in titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanomaterials due to their applications in photocatalytic hydrogen generation and environmental pollution removal. Improving the optical absorption properties of TiO2 nanomaterials has been successfully demonstrated to enhance their photocatalytic activities, especially in the report of black TiO2 nanoparticles. The recent progress in the investigation of black TiO2 nanomaterials has been reviewed here, and special emphasis has been given on their fabrication methods along with their various chemical/physical properties and applications.
