The formation of titania nanotubes through CeO2 colloids seeded deposition process in solution has been demonstrated. The interactions among colloidal particles play important roles for the solution “VLS”-type growth of nanotubes. The observation has significance for understanding solution nucleation and for developing new methods for nanomaterials preparation via the disclosed colloids seeded deposition (CSD) mechanism.
