Effect of Milling Time on the Structural Properties of Titanium Dioxide Nanopowder
This paper report the effect of milling time on the structural properties of TiO2 nanopowder prepared from sol-gel milling process. The synthesized TiO2 nanopowders have been characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM) and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR). XRD result reveals that the TiO2 nanopowder in anatase phase is detected. The morphology of the TiO2 nanopowder change obviously with the increase of the milling time. Further, FTIR results found the sharp peaks of Ti-O-Ti and Ti-O bonding at below 600 cm-1 for all TiO2 nanopowder.
