Abstract

Titanium dioxide has stimulated great research interest due to its unique optical and electric properties that are useful for photocatalysis [1], dye-sensitized solar cells [2] and various other devices [3]. The hydrothermal synthesis is one of the methods for the preparation of TiO2 nanostructures. The size, morphology and crystal phase of nanoparticles are controlled by the pH and temperature of hydrothermal environment [4]. However, for the growth of nanostructured TiO2 layer on a substrate, acidic or basic synthetic environments may damage the substrate. Therefore, a neutral synthetic environment is preferred.
