Nanotubes were produced from commercial and self-prepared anatase and rutile which were treated with 7.5 M NaOH over a temperature range of 100 – 200°C in 20°C increments. The formation of nanotubes was examined as a function of starting material type and size. Products were characterised by X-Ray Diffraction (XRD), Transmission Electron Spectroscopy (TEM), and Raman Spectroscopy. The results indicated that both phase and crystallite size affected the nanotube formation. Rutile was observed to require a greater driving force than anatase to form nanotubes, and increases in crystallite sizes appeared to impede formation slightly.
