Abstract:

Monovalent, bivalent and trivalent cations of Li+, Sn2+, Al3+, Fe3+ with different values of electronegativity were designed as doped-ions to prepare cations-intercalated titanate nanobelts through ex-situ ion-exchange reaction. XRD results revealed that the d 200 values of layered TNBs decreased as the following sequence: Li-intercalated TNBs > Al-intercalated TNBs > Fe-intercalated TNBs > Sn-intercalated TNBs. The electronegativity differences between respective doped-cations and oxygen can well explain the trend of the reduction of d 200 values for the synthesized layered nanobelts with different cations. The width change of nanobelts depending on intercalated cations showed similar tendency as that of d 200 excluding Sn-intercalated case. That is mostly due to the crystallization of SnO2 nanoparticles on the nanobelts. Sn2+ is easily crystallized to form SnO2 nanoparticles on the surface of TNBs and being considered as unfavorable metal dopant for the present intercalation purpose. The reduction of d 200 values of the doped TNBs from that of the undoped TNBs confirms the intercalation of the doped cations into layered structure. Such simple electronegativity-difference depending mechanism may be convenient for the designing of metal ion intercalation into octahedral TiO6 layered-oxide materials.
