We demonstrate a simple and green synthetic pathway to prepare TiO₂–carbon nanoparticles (C/TiO₂ NPs) by the sol–gel method, abandoning additional carbon sources but utilizing the organic group in the Ti precursor. Then the C/TiO₂ NPs were decarburized under an air atmosphere at 500 °C for 2 h to form the reduced TiO₂ nanoparticles. XRD, Raman spectrum, HRTEM and electron energy loss spectrum (EEL ...
