Abstract: In order to achieve better photocatalytic performance, rutile nanorods dispersed in anatase and brookite phases were synthesized from titanium isopropoxide (TIP) in a concentrated HNO3 solution at room temperature (23 °C). X-ray diffraction results indicated that the percentage of rutile increased with increasing peptization time. Scanning electron microscopy and and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy measurements revealed that the nanosized titania particles mainly consisted of granular anatase and brookite, and rod-like rutile. It was interesting that the stability of the colloid increased with increasing nanoparticle concentration, and the tricrystalline titania showed a photocatalytic activity higher than that of pure anatase. These nanocrystals were applied onto cotton fabrics, and achieved a promising bactericidal photocatalytic activity and excellent protection against UV radiation.
