Application

Titanium ethoxide is used widely as a precursor for the synthesis of Ti4+ ions titania nanoparticles by various techniques such as :
  • in the sol-gel synthesis of free-standing ferroelectric lead zirconate titanate nanoparticles
  • spherical titania cores, produced either by hydrolysis of Ti(IV) ethoxide droplets in contact with water vapor or
  • by preadsorption of the titanium alkoxides into/onto the clay mineral platelets and their subsequent hydrolysis and calcination.

Ag/TiO2 nanocomposites were prepared through combination of a sol-gel process of a titanium precursor in inverse miniemulsions and in situ reduction of silver ions in the "nanoreactors". The morphological investigation shows that Ag nanoparticles are mainly located on the surface...
