Titanium dioxide (Titania, TiO2) nanoparticles have been deposited on the surface of acid treated multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) by simple chemical route. The resultant TiO2/MWCNTs composites were characterized by different techniques. The oxidation of MWCNTs and presence of titania nanoparticles on the surface of MWCNTs is confirmed by transmission electron microscopy, energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. TEM image shows the size of titania nanoparticles are around 5 nm. Raman spectroscopy showed the oxidation and functionalization of nanotubes. The TGA curve showed decrease in thermal decomposition temperature of MWCNTs after oxidation and attachment with titania nanoparticles.
