    CaTiO3 nanoflowers, SrTiO3 nanocubes, and BaTiO 3 nanospheres have been prepared by an environmentally friendly solvothermal technique and structurally characterized by X-ray diffraction and field emission scanning electron microscopy. Red fluorescence originating from intra 4f 1D2-3H4 transition of Pr3+ is observed by doping Pr3+ ions in CaTiO3 nanoflowers. The energy transfer and red emission processes of Pr3+ in CaTiO3:Pr3+ nanoflowers are discussed.
