The adsorption properties of titanium dioxide were studied by gas chromatography. We used organic compounds from different classes, namely, n-alkanes, n-alkenes (C6-C8), and polar compounds (electron donors and acceptors) as test adsorbates. The differential heats of adsorption and the contributions of dispersion and specific intermolecular interaction energies were determined for the systems from the experimental retention data. The electron-donor and electron-acceptor characteristics of the ultimately hydroxylated surface of TiO2 were evaluated.
