Application

Titanium(IV) butoxide is a sourcing material for the preparation of titanium oxide (TiO2) which can further be used in a variety of applications such as dye sensitized solar cells (DSSCs), photo-catalytic and self-cleaning based coatings.
Used to prepare nanosized titania in the anatase form and ferroelectric Bi4Ti3O12 thin films. Used in the preparation of nanocrystalline TiO2 powders at room temperature.
