dc.description.abstract The influence of the method of synthesis in the properties of the tubular structures derived from TiO2 was investigated using XRD, SEM and BET analysis. The use of microwave irradiation resulted in the formation of TiO2 tubes comprising anatase and rutile phases. Conventional heating resulted in the formation of tubes with a titanate structure. The two methods yielded tubular structures with similar size dimensions, surface areas and morphologies. The two methods gave 100 % yields of tubes with different degrees of crystallinity. en
