In this paper, we report on a new procedure for nanocrystalline titania synthesis using microwave-assisted homogeneous hydrolysis under hydrothermal conditions. We show that this synthetic procedure promotes formation of low-aggregated TiO2 powders with very high specific surface area (up to 240 m2/g) and small particle size (5–7 nm), and that it hinders SO42– ions’ sorption on the surface of nanoparticles.
