Highly crystalline TiO2 nanostructures were prepared through a facile inorganic acid-assisted hydro- thermal treatment of hexagonal-structured assemblies of nanocrystalline titiania templated by cetyltrimethylammo-nium bromide (Hex-ncTiO2/CTAB Nanoskeleton) as start-ing materials. All samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The inﬂuence of hydrochloric acid concentration on the morphology, crystalline and the formation of the nano-structures were investigated.We found that the morphology and crystalline phase strongly depended on the hydrochloric acid concentrations. More importantly, crystalline phase was closely related to the morphology of TiO2 nanostruc-ture. Nanoparticles were polycrystalline anatase phase, and aligned nanorods were single crystalline rutile phase. Pos-sible formation mechanisms of TiO2 nanostructures with various crystalline phases and morphologies were proposed.
