Anatase nanocrystalline titania coatings were produced on cotton fabrics from alkoxide solutions using a low temperature sol-gel process under ambient pressure. Titania coatings of the anatase form were obtained via a classical hydrolysis and condensation reaction of titanium isopropoxide that was followed by a hydrothermal treatment. Spectroscopic and microscopic characterizations of the titania thin films showed that the anatase form is predominant throughout the film after the hydrothermal treatment and that the size of grains is about 20 nm.
