Tubular halloysite clay mineral and nanocrystalline TiO2 were incorporated in the preparation of nanocomposite films on glass substrates via sol-gel method at 450 °C. The synthesis involves a simple chemical method employing nonionic surfactant molecule as pore directing agent along with the acetic acidbased sol-gel route without addition of water molecules. Drying and thermal treatment of composite films ensure elimination of organic material and lead to the formation of TiO2 nanoparticles… CONTINUE READING
