Hydrothermal synthesis of 3D TiO2 nanostructures using nitric acid: Characterization and evolution mechanism

Erdogan, Nursev
Öztürk, Abdullah
Park, Jongee
Various morphologies of TiO2 nanostructures were synthesized by HNO3 assisted hydrothermal treatment with respect to the acid molarity (1 M, 3 M, and 8 M), temperature (110, 140, and 180 degrees C), and time (1, 3, and 6 h). An additional sample was synthesized inside the protonated titanate nanoribbon coated vessel with the acid molarity of 8M at 140 degrees C for 3 h. The crystal structure and morphology of the nanostructures synthesized were investigated using X-Ray diffractometer, scanning electron microscope, and transmission electron microscope. The results revealed that lower acid concentrations, longer synthesis durations and higher temperatures favored anatase phase formation. Meanwhile, a phase pure 3D lotus structure ruffle TiO2 could be obtained by hydrothermal synthesis at 8M HNO3 concentration at 140 degrees C for 3 h using protonated Htitanate nanoribbons. A probable mechanism for the evolution of 3D ruffle lotus structure was highlighted.

Conductimetric and potentiometric titration of some hydroxylated cinnamic acids with tetrabutylammonium hydroxide in non-aqueous media
Aktas, AH; Yasar, G; Alsancak, O; Demirci, S (2001-01-01)
In this study, four hydroxycinnamic acids, namely 3,4-dihydroxycinnamic acid, 4-hydroxycinnamic acid, 4-hydroxy -3- methoxycinnamic acid and 4-hydroxy-3,5-dimethoxycinnamic acid, were titrated conductimetrically and potentiometrically using triethylamine and tetrabutylammonium hydroxide in acetonitrile, 2-propanol, and pyridine solvents under a nitrogen atmosphere at 25 degreesC.
Electrochemical polymerization of 9-fluorenecarboxylic acid and its electrochromic device application
Bezgin, Buket; CİHANER, ATİLLA; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar (Elsevier BV, 2008-09-01)
Poly(9-fluorenecarboxylic acid) (PFCA) was synthesized by electrochemical oxidation of 9-fluorenecarboxylic acid (FCA) using a mixture of nitromethane and boron trifluoride diethyl etherate as the solvent and tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate as the supporting electrolyte. An insoluble and conducting brownish-orange film was deposited on the electrode surface, both during repetitive cycling and constant potential electrolysis at 1.15 V. Characterization of the polymer film has been carried out using Four...
Thermal catalytic hydrosilylation of conjugated dienes with triethylsilane in the presence of tricarbonyl(o-xylene)metal (metal = Cr, Mo, W) complexes
Kayran, C; Rouzi, P (Walter de Gruyter GmbH, 2001-11-01)
The thermal catalytic hydrosilylation of 1,3-butadiene (1), trans-2-methyl-1, 3-pentadiene (2), 2,3-dimethyl-1,3-butadiene (3), and isoprene (4), with triethylsilane were studied in the presence of M(CO)(3) (o-xylene) (M = Cr, Mo, W) complexes in polar and nonpolar solvents such as tetrahydrofuran, hexane and toluene. Mo(CO)(3) (o-xylene) was found to be the only active catalyst for the hydrosilylation of 3 with triethylsilane, which gave 1-triethylsilyl-2,3-dimethyl-2-butene (3a), as hydrosilylated product...
Conducting polymers of succinic acid bis-(2-thiophen-3-yl-ethyl)ester and their electrochromic properties
SACAN, L; Çırpan, Ali; CAMURLU, P; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Elsevier BV, 2006-02-01)
The homopolymer and copolymer of succinic acid bis-(2-thiophen-3-yl-ethyl)ester with thiophene were achieved via constant potential electrolysis in the presence of tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate as the supporting electrolyte, and acetonitrile/borontrifluoride ethylether (ACN/BFEE) (10:2 v/v) solvent mixture. The characterizations of both homopolymer (PSATE) and copolymer P(SATE-co-Th) were achieved by various techniques including cyclic voltammetry (CV), Fr-IR, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and U...
Solid-state synthesis and X-ray diffraction studies of Na2S
Kizilyalli, M.; Bilgin, M.; Kizilyalli, H.M. (Elsevier BV, 1990-4)
Na2S was synthesized by a new solid-gas reaction of Na2CO3 with a sulfidizing gas mixture and a solid-solid reaction of carbon with Na2SO4. The reaction products were analyzed by X-ray powder diffraction and IR methods. Two new crystal modifications of Na2S were identified in addition to the previously reported antifluorite structure. They were designated as cubic Form II and orthorhombic Form III. The approximate unit cell dimensions were found to be a = 11.29 Å for the cubic form and a = 15.94, b = 16.00,...
