The helical ribbon and double-layered nanotubular structures of the titanium dioxide were created by sol-gel polymerization of Ti(OiPr)4] using 1 as a template in 1-butanol. All TiO2 nanotubes consist of two layers, 8-9 nm of nanospace between layers. In addition, the helicity of the helical ribbon titanium dioxide showed a right-handed motif.
