In this study, we present a new approach toward titanium oxide nanowires. In this approach, the growth formation of the wires sets in at a temperature as low as 40°C under ambient pressure. Moreover, we provide evidence that nanowires with distinctive TiO2-anatase and TiO2-B structures can be directly produced without further thermal treatment using controlled reaction conditions. © 2006 American Chemical Society.
