Effect of Matrix on Phase Formation of Nanometer TiO2 Film
TiO2 films were prepared by infiltrating a titanium (IV) butoxide solution to the porous structures of glass and rutile TiO2, respectively, then dried and calcined at a moderate temperature of 550°C. Well-characterized porous nanometer TiO2 films were formed. Nanometer TiO2 film on glass matrix has an anatase phase, while that on rutile TiO2 has a rutile phase. These indicate that the phase formation of nanometer TiO2 could be tailored by the different matrices.
