Abstract / Description:The influence of the synthesis conditions (pH, HF concentration, procedure of application of the voltage) during the anodization of Ti foils to produce TiO2 thin films characterized by an ordered arrays of 1D nanostructures (nanorods, nanotubes) is discussed. Different types of 1D nanostructures could be obtained by changing the procedure of synthesis, as shown by field emission scanning electron microscopy images. The analysis of the current versus time curves during the procedure of synthesis provides indications on the sequence of processes occurring during the synthesis. It is also suggested that different growing mechanisms occur depending on the preparation, leading in turn to the different type of nanostructures observed. The relevance of this preparation method is related to the analysis of the relationship for oxide materials between nano-architecture and reactivity and gives the opportunity to prepare materials with an intermediate degree of complexity between model and applied catalysts.
