The findings of this study explore that calcination of hydrothermally synthesized titanate nanoribbons were converted to TiO2 (B) after which anatase were formed. On the other hand, titanate nanotubes were immediately converted to anatase. Nanotubes calcined at 400 °C provided the highest photocatalytic activity of all samples.
