This paper presents a simple way to synthesize titaniumdioxide nanotubes by using a microwave-assisted reaction of TiO2 particles and NaOH solution. The main advantage of the introduction of microwave into the reaction system is the extremely rapid kinetics for synthesis. This method is simple and easy to reproduce. Structural and microstructural. characterizations of titania nanotubes were accomplished using X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning-electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission-electron microscopy (TEM) techniques. The specific surface area was calculated using the Brunauer-Emmett-Teller model and was found to be 52 m(2)/g. A high photocatalysis of our TiO2 nanotubes was obtained.
