The principal aim of this study is to prepare the one-dimensional nanostructured TiO2 by a simple hydrothermal method with high quality (high crystallinity, surface area, thermal stability, photocatalytic activity, and dye-sensitized solar cell). One-dimensional nanostructured TiO2 was synthesized by hydrothermal method at 80-150 oC for 12-72 h. The samples were then characterized by XRD, SEM, TEM, HRTEM, and BET surface area. The results clearly showed that the prepared nanostructured TiO2 was the promising candidate to serve as the materials in dye-sensitized solar cells and H2 production from water reaction applications.
