Fast synthesis of anatase TiO2 single crystals by a facile solid-state method

Fast synthesis of anatase TiO2 single crystals by a facile solid-state method TiO2 single crystals have attracted much interest in the fields of optics, photoelectrochemistry, energy, and the environment due to their unique structure and photophysical and photochemical properties. In this paper, a solid-state reaction of TiF4 in air at a temperature range of 400–600 °C results in anatase TiO2 single crystals with high crystallinity and purity. The anatase TiO2 single crystals possess typical truncated bipyramids shape. The F atoms of TiF4 were gradually substituted by O atoms during the solid-phase transformation, which was revealed by XRD and TG–DTA. Research on Chemical Intermediates Springer Journals
