Single phase anatase TiO2 nanoparticles were prepared using Titanium tertachloride (TiCl4) as precursor through an inexpensive method. Well dispersed nanocomposites of silver at TiO2 were synthesized successfully by photochemical route. Both TiO2 and Ag/TiO2 were characterized using X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The particle size of TiO2 is found to be ∼ 11 nm and ∼ 22 nm for Ag/TiO2, by XRD and confirmed by TEM. TEM micrographs also show the single phase crystal of TiO 2 and confirm the deposition of silver among TiO2.
