    Abstract

    Titanium dioxide (TiO2)(B), one of metastable polymorphs of TiO2 was prepared by hydrothermal reaction of glycolato peroxotitanium complex ([Ti4(C2H2O3)4(C2H3O3)2(O2)2]6-) in the presence of H2SO4 as an additive. Characterization by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Raman spectroscopy, and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) revealed that the obtained powders were single-phase TiO2(B) with rod-like shape. Particle size and aspect ratio of TiO2(B) can be controlled by post-synthetic hydrothermal crystal growth (PHCG) of the as-prepared powder sample.
