Abstract Nanocrystals of TiO{sub 2} were synthesized by a single-step chemical reaction between oleic acid and titanium (IV) iso-propoxide. The morphology and structure of the crystals were studied by X-ray diffraction and transmission electron microscopy. The vibrational properties of the nanocrystals were studied by Raman spectroscopy. The ultraviolet photocatalytic activity of the TiO{sub 2} nanocrystals was investigated by studying the photodegradation of aqueous solution of protocatecheuic acid (3,4-dihydroxy benzoic acid)
