The simple and continuous synthesis of single crystalline anatase titanium dioxide and sodium titanate nanorods by a salt-assisted ultrasonic spray pyrolysis method is demonstrated. This method does not require expensive precursors, long reaction time, and physical templates or surfactant. In addition, its continuous nature makes it a suitable method for the large-scale preparation. Moreover, the effect of a salt concentration in a starting solution on material properties, including morphology

The synthesized nanorods had one-dimensionality, a single crystalline and the average diameter of 12.3 nm with dual phases of titanium dioxide and sodium titanate by FE-SEM, XRD, HR-TEM as well as FFT-converted SAED pattern analysis.
