Ceramic oxides nanofibers are promising materials as catalysts, electrodes and functional materials. In this report, a unique lamellar-like mesoporous structure was realized for the first time in a new system based on titania and alumina. The final structure was found to be highly dependent on the process conditions which are outlined herein. In view of the similar architecture we recently obtained with Fe-Al-O fibers, the pore formation mechanism we outline herein is general and is applicable to additional systems. View Full-Text
