Crystallization Behavior of Mg-Doped Titania


Article Preview

The Mg-doped TiO2 was prepared by Sol-gel method at low temperature. The crystallization of TiO2 was studied by DTA, it was shown that the phase transition temperature of the Mg (NO3)2-doped TiO2 from amorphous to anatase and then to rutile significantly reduce. The XRD results show that the Mg-doped TiO2 has anatase and rutile annealed at 600 °C. Studies of photo-catalytic degradation show that the photo-catalytic activity of Mg-doped TiO2 thin film is higher than that of non-doped TiO2.
