Epub 2013 Aug 5.The incorporation of aluminum acetylacetonate as alumina source during the gelation of titanium alkoxide reduces the nucleation sites for the formation of large rutile crystals on temperatures ranging from 400 to 800°C. As a result, the aggregation of anatase crystals is prevented at high temperature. A relationship among the specific surface area, pore size, energy band gap, crystalline structure and crystallite size as the most relevant parameters are evaluated and discussed. Read More
