Titanium dioxide pigment occurs in nature and is sourced from its ores: rutile, anatase and brookite
. The titanium dioxide pigment is generally synthesized using the chloride and sulfite process.
and anatase are metastable while rutile is most stable phase.
, anatase, and rutile forms of Ti[O.sub.2] nanoparticles (Grafen Chemical Industries, Ankara, Turkey) were coated with PEG and BSA.
phase is also metastable but difficult to synthesize, hence it is seldom studied .
Titanium oxide is found in three different crystalline forms: rutile, anatase, and brookite
. The anatase phase has been reported to display higher photocatalytic activity than the others, owing to its higher density of localized states .
It is well known that Ti[O.sub.2] has three polymorphs phases in nature: rutile, anatase, and brookite
; the band gap of rutile phase and anatase phase are 3.0 eV and 3.2 eV, respectively.
While those of TiO2 powders are mainly from rutile phase (card number: 21-1276), followed by brookite
(card number: 79-1973).
It is found in three crystalline phases: brookite
(orthorhombic), anatase (tetragonal) and rutile (tetragonal), wherein the anatase and rutile phases are commonly used in photocatalysis, which the anatase phase is considered the highest catalytic activity (Linsebigler, Lu, & Yates, 1995).

The molecular weight is 79.865, melting point 1843[degrees]C, Four naturally occurring titanium dioxide polymorphs exist : rutile, anatase, brookite
and titanium dioxide .
The 'high-1' and 'good' reservoir quality (classes I and III, respectively) quartz sandstones from the E6 structure are mainly composed of quartz, with minor amounts of clay (illite and/or kaolinite) and carbonate cement forming minerals, admixture of feldspar and accessory minerals represented by pyrite, barite, anatase and/or brookite
and zircon (Shogenov et al.
Ti[O.sub.2] crystallizes in three major structures: rutile (tetragonal), anatase (tetragonal), and brookite
