Researchers at Tokyo Tech have reported superconductivity in two kinds of higher titanium oxides prepared in the form of ultrathin films. With a thickness of around 120 nanometers, these materials reveal properties that are only just beginning to be explored. Many of us are familiar with titanium dioxide (TiO2), a whitener commonly used in sunscreens […]

Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie scientists have fabricated a nanomaterial made from nanoparticles of a titanium oxide compound for lithium sulfur battery cathodes. The titanium oxide, Ti4O7 is characterized by an extremely large surface area, and was tested as a cathode material in lithium sulfur batteries. Presently lithium batteries are one of the best […]

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory researchers have determined that water is only slightly more likely to stay in one piece as it binds to the catalyst surface than it is to form the hydroxyl pairs. When a molecule of water comes in for a landing on the common catalyst titanium oxide, it sometimes breaks up and […]

Currently titanium oxide-based sunlight energized photo catalysis is the most efficient, yet poorly understood conversion process for hydrogen generation by water splitting using solar energy.  Making use of solar to process water to hydrogen is considered a major challenge and goal because it offers a direct sun to fuel solution. Scientists of the KIT Institute […]
