Titanium dioxide Nano Needles

NCL’s technology involves a one-step
electrochemical process for the synthesis of
pure rutile Titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanoneedles, with high aspect ratio, at room temperature. Nanoneedles with
aspect ratio of =10 can be produced with very
good control over the morphology of the
resulting TiO2.

Sector: Biotechnology
Country: India
Area of Application:
Rutile TiO2 is widely used as/in
· UV protecting agent
· In optical coatings
· Beam splitters
· Anti-reflection coating
· Humidity sensor
· High-temperature oxygen sensor
· Photo-catalyst
· Biomedicine
Keywords: Nanoneedles, Rutile Titanium dioxide, TiO2, one-step electrochemical process, morphology control, photocatalyst, paints, coating
· Less energy intensive (process carried out at
room temperature)
· Ability to synthesize phase-pure rutile TiO2
· Reduced time for synthesis (as this process
avoids any formation of intermediate
amorphous powder or anatase phase and
hence doesn’t need heat treatment to from
rutile TiO2)
· Easier, cheaper, quicker process (when
compared to previous methods of synthesis)
