An attempt has been made to develop a candidate for electro-rheological (ER) nano-suspensions based on anatase titanium dioxide with a particle diameter around 300 nm. The micro-gap flow behavior and microstructure were evaluated for a suspension with a particle volume fraction of 8.8 vol.%. The ER effect was investigated for the nano-suspension. The effect of shearing time on the ER responses was also investigated. The ER effect was discussed in comparison to the effect previously reported for the nano-suspension based on rutile titanium dioxide with a particle diameter around 15 nm.
