Title (EN) METHODS FOR PRODUCTION OF TITANIUM OXIDE PARTICLES, AND PARTICLES AND PREPARATIONS PRODUCED THEREBY
(FR) PROCEDES DE PRODUCTION DE PARTICULES D'OXYDE DE TITANE, ET PARTICULES ET PREPARATIONS AINSI OBTENUES
Abstract:
(EN) The invention provides a method for the formation of small-size titanium oxide particles, comprising the steps of a) preparing a starting aqueous solution comprising at least one of titanic ions and complexes thereof, at a concentration of at least 0.1 % w/w titanium; b) maintaining the solution at a temperature lower than 70°C for a retention time in which hydrolysis takes place, the extent of the hydrolysis being sufficient to produce O.immol protons per mmol of titanium present in solution, wherein the time does not exceed 14 days, to form a system containing a retained solution; and c) adjusting the conditions in the system by at least one of the steps of: i) heating the retained solution to elevate the temperature thereof by at least 1 °C; ii) changing the pH of the retained solution by at least 0.1 units; and iii) diluting the retained solution by at least 20% whereby there are formed particles, wherein the majority of the particles formed are between about 2nm and about 500nm in size.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé de formation de particules d'oxyde de titane de petites dimensions. Le procédé comporte plusieurs opérations. a) On commence par préparer une solution aqueuse de départ comprenant des ions de titane ou certains de leurs complexes à une concentration massique d'au moins 0,1 % de titane. b) On maintient la solution à une température inférieure à 70 °C le temps nécessaire à la réalisation de l'hydrolyse, l'importance de l'hydrolyse étant suffisante pour produire 0,1 mmol protons par mmol de titane présent dans la solution, cette durée n'excédant pas 14 jours, de façon à former un système contenant la solution retenue. Enfin, c) on règle les conditions dans le système, ce qui nécessite les opérations suivantes. i) On chauffe la solution retenue pour en élever la température d'au moins 1 °C. ii) On modifie le pH de la solution d'au moins 0,1 point. Enfin, iii) on dilue la solution retenue d'au moins 20 %. On obtient ainsi des particules formées, la majorité d'entre elles étant d'un calibre d'environ 2nm à environ 500 nm.
