Titanate nanotubes were synthesized by hydrothcrmal method al 105 aegree Celsius for 24 h (setting temperature) using natural leueoxene mineral as the starting material The samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The prepared nanotubes showed internal diameter of 4-6 nm. External diameter of 8-10 nm, and !he length of 0.2-1 (mu).m. This synthesis method provided a simple mule to fabricate nanostructured material from low cost natural mineral using Thai autoclave unit.
