Synthesis and characteristics study of TiO2 nanowires and nanoflowers on FTO/glass and glass substrates via hydrothermal technique

In this work, a typical hydrothermal synthesis to grow long, high density, vertically aligned, well oriented and homogenous TiO2 nanowires arrays and flower-like film on conductive and nonconductive sides of fluorine doped tin oxide substrate are presented

  • In this work, a typical hydrothermal synthesis to grow long, high density, vertically aligned, well oriented and homogenous TiO2 nanowires arrays and flower-like film on conductive and nonconductive sides of fluorine doped tin oxide substrate are presented
  • Two cleaned FTO-glass samples were placed inside the autoclave cylinder
  • The flower-like nanostructure growth was confirmed in the absence of FTO by scratched line made on conductive side
  • The synthesized products were characterized by SEM equipped with EDS, XRD and UV–VIS NIR spectrophotometer
