Abstract

TiO2/carbon nanotubes (CNTs) composite nanofibers were prepared by sol-gel processing followed by electrospinning technique. Phase pure titania/CNT nanofiber of 100-150 nm diameters were obtained by high temperature calcinations of the inorganic organic composite fibers. The inclusion of nanotubes with TiO2 was confirmed by FT-IR and Raman spectra and corresponding morphology and crystallinity were observed by SEM, TEM, and XRD analysis.
