Uniform, well-defined, tetragonal nanocuboids of anatase TiO2 enclosed by active {100} and {001} facets over a wide size range with controllable aspect ratios are solvothermally synthesized through hydrolysis of titanium tetraisopropoxide, using acetic acid as the solvent and 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium tetrafluoroborate as the capping agent. The obtained anatase TiO2 nanocuboids exhibit interesting self-assembly behavior, remarkable crystalline phase stability, and enhanced photocatalytic activity.
