Pengaruh Ethanolamina (MEA) dalam Pembentukan TiO2 dari Bahan Awal Ti Butoksida

Rika Rahayu, Posman Manurung, Yanti Yulianti


Titanium dioxide has been prepared through the sol gel method using the addition of ethanolamine. The research was conducted to study the effect of MEA on the formation of TiO2. The amount of MEA was varied to 0; 0.5; 1; 1.5; and 2 ml respectively. The samples were calcined at a temperature of 500 ºC. TiO2was characterized using X-Ray Diffraction (XRD), Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) and photocatalyst tests using UV lamps. The XRD characterization results showed that in the A  sample an anatase phase was formed whereas in the Csample an anatase phase and a brookite phase were formed. The resultof TEM characterization using ImageJ software show that the particle size of TiO2 is26,1  nm, respectively. The results of the characterization of the fastest photocatalyst catalyst test occurred in sample C which the variation of MEA is 1 ml.
