Au and Pd doped TiO2 nanocrystals were prepared using sol-gel routes. Scanning Electron Microscopy(SEM) and X-ray diffraction(XRD) techniques were used to characterize the samples. The effects of dopants on the phase transformation and grain growth were investigated. Gold does not affect the anatase-rutile transformation temperature whereas palladium does.
