In (f), the filled symbols refer to the decay in wetting angle during illumination and the empty symbols refer to the recovery of wetting angle when the illuminated thin films were kept in the dark. The inset in (f) shows an enlarged time scale evolution of wetting angle for the PVD thin films under illumination [185]. Copyright 2009 Elsevier. 3 Hydrothermal treatment Hosono et al. reported a fabrication method of TiO2 nanosheet films by heat treatment [197]. The resulting anatase TiO2 nanosheet films showed superhydrophilic properties without the need for any UV irradiation treatment.

Copyright 2009 Elsevier. 3 Hydrothermal treatment Hosono et al. reported a fabrication method of TiO2 nanosheet films by heat treatment [197]. The resulting anatase TiO2 nanosheet films showed superhydrophilic properties without the need for any UV irradiation treatment. An aqueous solution of urea and the titanium sheet were placed in a Teflon-lined autoclave, which was heated at 100°C for 4 days. After the hydrothermal treatment, the sheet was then transformed to TiO2 by heating at 400°C or 600°C for 30 min in air.
