Titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanoparticles (NPs) have a wide variety of properties that can be utilized for industrial and academic functions. TiO2 is a common and non-toxic material that can be used in the photocatalysis of organic molecules. The most common forms of these particles are anatase and rutile. This experiment focused on the synthesis of the less common, brookite crystal structure. In addition, we looked at how different ratios of Oleylamine (OLAM) in the synthesis affect the growth of the nanocrystals. Synthesized particles were characterized using X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, and transmission electron microscopy
