One gram of TiO2 nanoparticles, size of 30-50 nm and 20 ml of 3M of NaOH as the suspension were utilized in a hy-drothermal process using three homemade reactors of different surface areas but of the same capacity to synthesise tita-nium sub-oxide Ti6O11. X-ray diffraction, Raman spectroscopy, and field-emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM) were employed to characterise the samples. When the temperature was raised to 363 K (90 °C) for 6 h and the surface area changed, X-ray diffraction revealed the development of sub-oxide titanium (Ti6O11) with a triclinic Magnéli phase from TiO2 nanoparticles. FE-SEM revealed consistent hierarchical structures with grass-like planar ge-ometries. In titanium, a new phase has been discovered.
