Findings from University Erlangen-Nurnberg Provides New Data on Nanotubes

June 27, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- Fresh data on Nanotubes are presented in a new report. According to news reporting from Erlangen, Germany, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Rational design and processing are critical to the fabrication of high performance architectures."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from University Erlangen-Nurnberg, "Although the fabrication of titania nanotube (TN) array films has been studied extensively during the last decade, fabrication of ordered nanoporous titania structures at ambient conditions still remains a challenge. In this work, we report a method for the fabrication of hybrid TN/nanopore layers by altering the electrochemical conditions during titanium anodization."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The electrochemical and photocatalytic properties of nanolayers at different stages of the transition from nanoporous TiO2 to nanotubular TiO2 structure were studied by different electrochemical characterization techniques."
