Abstract
Highly water-dispersible and very small TiO 2 nanoparticles (~3 nm anatase) with large specific surface area have been synthesized by hydrolysis and hydrothermal reactions of titanium butoxide and used for the removal of three azo dyes (Congo red, orange II, and methyl orange) with different molecular structure from simulated wastewaters. The synthesized TiO 2 nanoparticles are well dispersed in water with large specific surface area up to 417 m 2 g −1 . Adsorption experiments demonstrated that the water-dispersible TiO 2 nanoparticles possess excellent adsorption capacities for Congo red, orange II, and methyl orange, which could be attributed to their good wat...
