Fabrication of TiO2 Nanotanks Embedded in a Nanoporous Alumina Template

Figure 1

Schematic procedure for preparation of TiO2 nanotanks embedded in a nanoporous alumina template: (a) the AAO template with both sides opened is lifted to the wet inorganic TiO2 coating. (b) The AAO nanocavities are filled with the titanium alkoxide sol. (c) The sol in excess at the surface is wiped. (d) After the annealing, a development step is then applied in order to remove partially AAO template. (e) TiO2 nanotanks embedded in an AAO nanoporous template are obtained.
