Abstract: Titanate aqueous solution (TTIP-Lac) prepared by direct reaction of titanium tetraisopropoxide (TTIP) with lactic acid (Lac) in water shows characteristics of a polyanion and acts as a dispersant for preparing titanate suspension. Electrophoretic deposition (EPD) of aqueous titania suspensions was investigated with TTIP-Lac as a dispersant and hydroquinone (HQ) as an effective additive for bubble-free EPD of the aqueous system. The oxygen produced electrolytically by the EPD process at basic pH would be consum…
