This paper starts with the preparation of anatase titania nanotube (TN) in large quantities by hydrothermal routes with different calcination temperatures, and then delves into a thorough investigation for the characterization of. ne structures or formation mechanism of TN. Experimentally, anatase TiO(2) nanoparticle was used as a precursor for TN synthesis. The results showed that the length and diameter of TN range are 50-100nm and 10-15 nm, respectively. The XRD patterns and BET isotherms indicated that TN owns anatase-typed structures with a surface area of 292m(2)/g. By extended X-ray absorption. ne structure (EXAFS) spectra, the valency and framework of TN are Ti(IV) with octahedral structures. The EXAFS data also revealed that TN has a first shell of Ti-O bonding with bond distances of 1.95 angstrom and coordination numbers were 2. The results revealed that the TiO(2) anatase nanoparticles can be solved into layer under strong alkaline. The layer of TN further curling itself to reduce the energetics was postulated and found. For calcination temperature larger than 400 degrees C, the microstructure of TN might transform from nanotube into nanoparticles accompanying with the sharp increase for the nanoparticle crystalline phase. With the understanding of pore structure variation on the basic dye ( Basic Green 5 (BG5)), the adsorption ability, mechanisms, and kinetics of (Basic Green 5 (BG5)) dye onto TN were examined as well.
