We, developed novel and simple method for preparing Titanium dioxide (TiO2) Nano powder by using Sol Gel synthesis technique. The Structural, Thermal, Chemical, Morphological and Optical characterizations were carried out by XRD, DSC/TGA, FTIR, SEM and UV-visible Spectroscopy. The results showed that prepared powder was an amorphous in structure and transformed into anatase and rutile structures by annealing at 280oC and 600oC respectively. The grain sizes ranges from 7nm – 41nm and the Band gap was estimated 3.2 (eV).
