The thermal stability of hexatitanate nanowires produced by hydrothermal digestion of TiO2 in concentrated KOH solution followed by ion exchange depends acutely on their composition. Depending on the mix of cations present, behavior can range from rapid conversion to anatase, retarded conversion to anatase or recrystallization of a mixed-cation titanate.
