Abstract: In this study, titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanostructured films were synthesized under microwave irradiation through low temperature synthesis (80 °C) and integrated in ultraviolet (UV) photodetectors and as photocatalysts. Bacterial nanocellulose (BNC), tracing paper, and polyester film were tested as substrates, since they are inexpensive, flexible, recyclable, lightweight, and when associated to low temperature synthesis and absence of a seed layer, they become suitable for several low-cost applications. The nanostructured TiO2 films and substrates were structurally characterized by s ...
