Within the field of nanotechnology, nano-scale composites have significant potential in the development of advanced materials for functional applications. Here, composites based on carbon nanotubes and titanium dioxides have been prepared with titanyl sulfate using a chemical bath deposition method at or near room temperature... Two kinds of titanium dioxide depositions corresponding to rutile and anatase were sheathed on carbon nanotubes evenly by adjusting the precursor concentration and temperature. Possible composite mechanisms are discussed. Compared with original tubes, the specific surface areas have been improved nearly four times and the content ratio of mesostructures has also been increased after deposition processes. read more
