Abstract

Potassium titanate nanorods were achieved by sol-gel/hydrothermal combined method. KOH and triethylamine have been used to control the shape and size of synthesized material. The present of potassium in as-synthesized titanate nanorods was removed by washing with HCl solution and the samples were then dried at room temperature. On the basis of powder XRD pattern, it has been found that the KTiO 2(OH) has a hexagonal tunnel structure with the space group P6 222 and lattice parameters a=7.50538 Å and c=25.9711 Å. The size, and morphology of the KTiO 2(OH) nanorods were characterized with TEM. The morphology of potassium titanate nanorods is relatively uniform with diameters in the range from 5 to 10 nm and lengths up from 50 to 100 nm.
