This study reports on the influence of solubilising matrices on TiO2 nanoparticle synthesis. A Wet Chemical Method was used to synthesis TiO2 nanoparticles by solubilising TiCl4 in three types of solvents: water, toluene and methylene chloride. Physical, chemical and optical properties of the TiO2 nanoparticles obtained from these various solubilising agents were characterised by XRD, UV-Vis, FTIR and SEM. Results were compared for each solvent with TiO2 nanoparticles solubilised in water having the best properties||Description:||Conference Paper||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/11189/7984||DOI:||https://doi.org/10.17758/EARES4.EAP1118249|
