Paper Title:
Effect of Coarsening of Sonochemical Synthesized Anatase on BET Surface Characteristics
  Abstract

In the present paper TiO2 (anatase) nanoparticles were synthesized by ultrasonic radiation proving the potential of this method. The synthesized anatase is heat treated at a temperature of 500°C in open air to coarse it using times from 1 h to 72 h. The heat treatment conditions were selected to prevent phase transformation and to solely sponsor coarsening of anatase from 6.2 nm to 28.3 nm. The synthesized and heat treated anatase were characterized using Electron Microscopy (Transmission and Scanning), X-ray diffraction (XRD), Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET) method, UV-vis, Raman and Infrared spectroscopy. In the preset work is presented an analysis of anatase that is complemented by the agreement in the different characterization methods. This helps in the understanding of anatase coarsening as a function of heat treatment time and grain size, being the late a more suitable approach. This work opens up new perspectives to produce synthetic nanoparticulate anatase with potential for various applications.
