Synthesis and Characterization of Sodium Titanate and Nanostructures Loaded with Silver Nanoparticles
- Conference date: 23–25 September 2011
- Location: Bali, (Indonesia)
Sodium titanate nanostructures loaded with nanoparticles were synthesized from anatase doped with and NaOH(aq) under hydrothermal conditions. Presence of ions in reaction mixture prevented the growth of sodium titanate nanotubes. Instead of nanotubes half rolled sodium titanate slabs were formed. HAADF‐STEM characterization revealed that nanoparticles are homogenously distributed on titanate matrix. By an ion exchange process sodium ions were exchanged with in a solution of acetic acid. Further thermal treatment at in a reductive atmosphere transformed protonated titanate slabs into slabs loaded with nanoparticles. The ion exchange process slightly reduced the average diameter of nanoparticles when compared to the diameter of nanoparticles in the as synthesized sample. The samples were characterized by high angle annular dark field scanning transmission electron microscopy (HAADF‐STEM), X‐ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and X‐ray diffraction (XRD).
