Titanium Dioxide is an oxide metal which is widely used as catalyst or catalyst support. The focus in this project is to study the characteristics of mesoporous titanium dioxide, and also to :ntily the method on synthesizing the material Various researches have been conducted :arding the porous material identifYing the lilctors that influencing the size of the pore fur the :terial and also the suitable method to synthesize porous material specifically, mesoporous anium Dioxide. In this study, too, size of the pore would also be manipulated until it reaches :desired pore size by conducting series of experiment. ere are two parameters that need to be investigated in this project. The first and most portant parameter is the pH of the solution. For this project, base pH is chosen (pH 8, 9, 10, 11 112). The pore size can certainly be affected by the pH ofthe solution. The pH provides a dium for the Titanium Chloride to react with water and HCL. Therefore, it is crucial for this earch to find the most optimum pH in synthesizing Ti02• The second parameter is the calcined temperature which comes after the drying process. Three calcined temperature is suggested (450, ) and 550°C) and, still, the optimum calcined teU:!perature also needs to be fuund. aU:~ples consist of pH 8, 9, I 0, II and 12 respectively have been synthesized fur the 1eriment. However, the results fur the pore size and the crystalline structure still could not be ained due to time constraint. Perhaps during the final presentation of this project, the results all ofthe saU:~ples could be obtained.
