Titania nanotube arrays as a novel nano-material has unique highly ordered array structure, good mechanical and chemical stability, as well as excellent corrosion resistance. It has been fabricated by electrochemical anodization of pure Ti sheet in electrolytes containing small amounts of fluoric ions. This paper reviews the new research achievements of TiO2 nanotube arrays on the preparation processes, forming mechanism, modification and the applications in the photocatalytic degradation of pollutants, solar cells, gas sensor materials, photolysis water. The existing problems and further prospects in this field are also discussed.
