This huge amount of energy flow is uniformly radiated into all directions from the Sun. At the distance of 150 million kilometers away, the exposed area of the Earth receives approximately 1368 W mÀ2. As 30% of the irradiated solar energy is reflected by the atmosphere, approximately 1000 W mÀ2 of solar energy is received everywhere on the surface of the Earth. While this amount of total energy provided by the Sun is far more than sufficient, the real challenge is about how to efficiently collect and use the solar energy.

1 Introduction Photo-active nanomaterials are extensively used in energy production and environmental applications1 – such as sensors,2 degradation of organic pollutants,3 photoelectric conversion,4 electrochromic displays,5 and likely numerous undiscovered applications. This chapter explores the problems of conventional synthetic methods, which usually consume more chemicals, generate more waste, and require more energy for reaction than current environmental standards allow for in commercial and industrial applications.

The photocatalytic properties of TiO2 nanoparticles bestow the potential to rapidly degrade pollutants in wastewater, and split water into hydrogen and oxygen. 16 Among them, the hydrothermal method is a very useful technique to synthesize TiO2. The reaction can be initiated at relatively low temperature (100 1C). The particle size, morphology, and composition are tunable by controlling the reaction conditions such as temperature and heating time. 17 Two green and simplified methods are often used to prepare the photoactive TiO2 nanomaterials.
