Summary

To analyze some of the aspects about anatase stability, we have doped it with three different cations: lithium, which occupies interstitial sites in anatase unit cell, calcium, which substitutes for titanium atoms in anatase but has a smaller valence than titanium, and tin, which also substitutes for titanium atoms, has the same valence, but its stable oxide has a rutile-type crystalline structure. The analysis was performed by using X-ray powder diffraction.
