Summary

Titanium alkoxides have been used to prepare low titania silicate glasses and coatings. High reactivity of the titanium alkoxides prevents it from being utilized for a wide range of applications. Titanium isopropoxide reacts with acetylacetone and forms stable compounds, TIAA (titanium diisopropoxy bis acetylacetonate), where the two isopropoxide groups are replaced with acetylacetonate groups. The results of the mechanism study on TIAA shows ease of control of reaction rate and thus the sol structure. The properties of the coatings on substrated are discussed as a function of heat treatment procedures.
