Abstract

Nanosized TiO 2 powder with anatase and rutile structures was synthesized by a sol-gel method using TiCl 4 ethanol solution as a precursor. The grain size of TiO 2 powder was about 63 nm after the precursor was calcined at 600°C for 2 hours. The experimental techniques of XRD, TEM and Particle Distribution were used to characterize the synthesized specimens. Various special effects were investigated for their contribution to crystal structure and the size of TiO 2 powder. The formation of anatase as well as the rutile phase of TiO 2 was indicted from the XRD when the reaction temperature was above 30°C and when the sol was irradiated by infrared rays. However, an anatase TiO 2 powder formed after the heat treatment of the dried gel in a temperature range from 300°C to 500°C. Under the vacuum drying and with the calcined time below 3hours, the anatase phase was gained. As well as with the increase of gelatinizing time, the anatase TiO 2 powder was obtained.
