Abstract :

The main objective of this work was to prepare anti–pollutant and photocatalyst Titanium dioxide nanoparticles by simple ethylene glycol route to synthesize titanium dioxide nanoparticles at industrial level. In this work TiO2  was prepared by sol–gel route in presence of titanium n–butoxide (TNBT) as TiO2  precursor, n–butanol as dilutant and EG as solvent and chelating agent. The X–ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy studies show that the product has anatase crystal structure with average particle size 20–50 nm. The nanoparticles thus prepared can be used for gas sensing and biological applications, also as photo–electrodes for dye–sensitized solar cells and in removing the organic chemicals which occur as pollutants in wastewater effluents from industrial and domestic sources.
