Considerable efforts have focused on functional TiO2@carbonaceous hybrid nanostructured materials (TiO2@C) to satisfy the future requirements of environmental photocatalysis and energy storage using these advanced materials. In this study, we developed a two-step solution-phase reaction to prepare hybrid TiO2@C with tuneable structure and composition from the hydrothermal carbonization (HTC) of glucose. X-ray diffraction (XRD), Raman spectroscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), and… CONTINUE READING
