Paper Title:
Synthesis of Titania Nanostructures and their Application as Catalyst Supports for Hydrogenation and Oxidation Reactions
  Abstract

Nanomaterials are of great importance for their versatile applications in gas sensors, solar cells and photocatalysis due to their unique optical, electrical and catalytic properties. Titania derived nanotubular and nanospherical particles with a titanate structure were synthesized using a hydrothermal procedure in the presence of very concentrated solutions of KOH and NaOH respectively. Both nanostructures were found to exhibit relatively large specific surface areas, i.e. 280 and 303 m2/g for materials treated in NaOH and KOH respectively. The morphological and structural properties were characterised by TEM, SEM, Raman spectroscopy and XRD.
