Having in mind that anodic oxidation method can be used for tailoring desired structure and morphology of TiO2, herein the synthesis of self-ordered TiO2 nanotubes via electrochemical anodization of high purity Ti foil is reported. The influence of synthesis parameters such as oxidative voltage, different electrolyte, annealing temperature and annealing atmosphere were explored and correlate with obtained TiO2 nanotube arrays. The results show that applied potential is the main factor that controls the diameter of the nanotubes, while annealing temperature influence on crystal type and morphology is related to different contents of electrolyte. Investigated method gives opportunity to enhanced performance of TiO2 nanotubes, providing many applications in different field.
