Thermal stability of titanate nanotubes

Study of temperature stability of titanate nanotubes (Ti-NT) is important because applications of Ti-NT such as solar cells or photocatalysis (and others) require heating of the material [1]. By heating of Ti-NT at low temperature range (from room temperature till approximately 200o C) the releasing of the adsorbed and interlayer water were observed by X-ray diffraction [2], [4] and DSC analysis [3], [5]. At higher temperature the anatase structure of TiO2 started to grow [4],[5]. Finally at the temperatures higher than 700o C the nanotubes transformed to nanorods with the structure: Na2Ti6O13 [2],[3],[4],[5] and nanoparticles with rutile structure of TiO2 [4],[5].

In this contribution, the structure changes of titanate nanotubes were studied by combination of powder X-ray diffraction and DSC analysis. At low temperature the releasing of water were observed by X-ray diffraction and confirmed with DSC. The next transformation to anatase structure of TiO2 started approximately at 520o C which was observed by powder X-ray diffraction and with increasing temperature the anatase structure became more crystalline. DSC showed that this transformation occurred at a little bit higher temperature of 550C. The final transformation to nanorods with structure of Na2Ti6O13 and nanoparticles with rutile structure of TiO2 was started at 750o C and with increasing temperature the powder X-ray signal of these two phases became stronger and the anatase structure was completely transformed to rutile.
