Paper Title:
The Effect of Al2O3 and Li2O on the Anatase to Rutile Phase Transformation
  Abstract

The utilization of Al2O3 and Li2O as dopants that promote the anatase-to-rutile (A-R) phase transition in TiO2 nanoparticles during calcinations is studied. X-Ray Diffraction and SEM techniques were employed for the evaluation of phase transformation and particle size coarsening in pure TiO2, TiO2-Al2O3 and TiO2-Li2O mixtures. For the Li-Ti-O pseudobinary systems some complex oxides may be formed during phase transformation that occurs at significantly lower temperatures compared to pure TiO2 or TiO2-Al2O3 mixtures. Al2O3 doping in TiO2 only increases the anatase-to-rutile transition rate once the phase transformation has been initiated.
