Abstract(s) :

(Anglais) Titanium dioxide (TiO2) has been an important material for decades, combining numerous attractive properties in terms of economy (low price, large availability) or ecology (nontoxic), as well as broad physical and chemical possibilities. In the last few years, the development of nanotechnologies offered new opportunities, not only in an academic perspective but also with a view to many applications with particular reference to the environment. This chapter focuses on the many ways that allow to tailor and organize TiO2 crystallites at the nanometre scale to make the most of this amazing material in the field of photovoltaics and gas sensing.
