TiO2 nanoparticles (TiO2 NPs), synthetised by the hydrolysis at room temperature of titanyl oxalate, have been characterised by UV-vis spectroscopy and photoluminescence analysis. The influence of precursor concentration on Ti02 NPs growth and their optical properties have been studied. By the interpretation of absorbance spectra a rapid formation of titania clusters has been suggested and a constant energy onset at 3.59 eV has been found, according to a direct transition calculated for titanum dioxide. No size quantization effects can be addressed for stabilised colloids. Two photoluminescence (PL) peaks have been assigned to direct and indirect transitions, respectively. A third peak has been related to surface oxygen vacancies. Copyright © 2008 American Scientific Publishers All rights reserved.
