Hierarchical N-doped TiO2 microspheres with exposed (001) facets were successfully synthesized in a fluorine-free solvothermal reaction. Isopropylamine was used as the nitrogen source and as the capping and shape-controlling agent to generate the (001) facets. The hierarchical TiO2 microspheres exhibit good photocatalytic activity and high stability under visible-light irradiation.
