Titanium dioxide or titania (TiO2) has well-known photoactive
antimicrobial attributes. It also readily forms on titanium
implants. Recently conducted in vitro studies have demonstrated
increased osteoblast functions of nanostructured TiO2 necessary
to promote the efficacy of orthopedic implants. Titania-based
ceramics (bulk material, thin films, nanoscale powders, etc.) are
generally synthesized by using either a highly corrosive and
toxic titanium tetrachloride (TiCl4) and titanium oxychloride
(TiOCl2) or rather expensive and moisture-sensitive titanium
isopropoxide [Ti(C3H7O)4] as the starting chemicals. In this
paper, the technique of electrospinning has been used to fabricate
non-woven, breathable titania nanomats employing titanyl
nitrate as a benign and inexpensive precursor.
Titanium dioxide (also known as rutile) in pure or doped form
has been extensively used in a number of applications, ranging
