Titanate nanorod synthesis method is extremely important due to their large application in electronic, catalysis, and biological areas. However, works reporting the influence of synthesis parameters on the structure, morphology, and properties of titanate nanorods are still rare. Therefore, this work aims to analyze the preparation of titanate nanorods from TiO2 nanoparticles via hydrothermal reaction. The microstructure and morphological properties were evaluated as a function of time, temperature and precursor nature (anatase or anatase/rutile mixture) by X-ray powder diffraction, Raman spectroscopy, transmission electron microscopy and field-emission scanning electron microscopy. The crystallinity of the precursor was the main parameter for the titanate nanorods formation. Besides, temperature has also a direct influence in the fibril morphology. The use of low temperature and anatase/rutile mixture was not able to produce titanate nanorods. Only the use of higher temperatures and pure anatase resulted in rod-like titanates, which showed higher methylene blue photodegradation efficiency than TiO2 nanoparticles. (AU)
