Abstract TiO2 three-layer sol-gel films have been deposited on soda-lime silicate glass slides and dried in two different ways to study the effect of drying on thin film structure. The structural properties, surface topography and photocatalytic activity of the films were studied by X-ray diffraction, atomic force microscopy, and by analysing photocatalytic degradation of methyl orange, respectively. The titanium oxide sol-gel layers on glass slides dried at 20 °C before the deposition of next layers after final calcination at 500 °C resulted in a nanorod array film with good photocatalytic activity.
