As shown in Figure 1, Ti[O.sub.2] nanotubes were first treated with various concentrations of aqueous thiolactic acid (0.1, 0.2, and 0.5 M; Sigma, MO, USA) for 30 min and then dried at 60 [degrees]C for 12 h.
Figure 3 shows FE-SEM and EDX micrographs of GNR-grafted Ti[O.sub.2] nanotubes treated by different concentrations of thiolactic acid (0.1, 0.5, and 1.0 M).
Table 1 lists the amounts of main elements detected at the surface of Ti[O.sub.2] nanotubes treated by different concentrations of aqueous thiolactic acid solution.
From the results of this research, we can surmise that covalent immobilization of GNR on Ti[O.sub.2] nanotubes via a grafting technique was performed successfully by thiolactic acid treatment.
