Aqueous route to TiO2-based nanomaterials using pH-neutral carboxylate precursors

Journal of Sol-Gel Science and Technology Aims and scope Submit manuscript

Abstract

The review presents the industrial and laboratory synthesis, molecular structure and reactivity of titanium(IV) carboxylate complexes stable in aqueous medium. A special accent is made on the solution ligand-transfer equilibria that are able to provide uniform TiO2 nanoparticles under rather mild conditions starting from these easily commercially available species. Application of titanium oxide nanostructures derived from solution-generated titania nanoparticles is described in detail.
