Facile Synthesis of Nanostructured Anatase Titania with Controllable Morphology via Oxidation of TiC with Hydrogen Peroxide
(a) The well-developed rice-shaped nanoparticles obtained after the aging for 2 months. Inset is the SAED pattern. (b) RT Raman and XRD pattern for the rice-shaped nanoparticles in (a), being indicative of the anatase phase. (c) HRTEM image of a rice-shaped nanoparticle and the corresponding FFT power pattern, indicating the good crystallinity of ice-shaped nanoparticles. (d) The enlarged HRTEM image showing the presence of nanopores as marked out by the red circle.
