A Simple Way of Producing Nano Anatase TiO2 in Polyvinyl Alcohol Fibers
A simple way of producing nanoTiO2 on fiber polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) has been done using solution anatase TiO2 micro powder as a solution for electro spinner machine. The process relies upon the mixing of TiO2 and PVA in deionized water before converted it into fiber. The result shows that before and after heat treatment at 300°C, the electrospinning process are able to carry 60% TiO2 in the anatase phase and to reduce the fiber size and carry the crystalline in nanosize showing a potential way of making fiber carrying nanocrystalline anatase.
