In order to achieve better photocatalytic performance, rutile dispersion in anatase was obtained from titanium isopropoxide (TIP) in a highly acidic solution at room temperature. Further hydrothermal treatment at 130 °C increased the crystallinity of titania. TEM revealed that the nanosized titania particles mainly consisted of granular anatase and rodlike rutile. These nanocrystals were applied onto cotton fabrics, and achieved a durable and satisfying protection against UV radiation. Preliminary experiments convinced us on the better photocatalytic behavior than the pure anatase phase.
