The formation of nanofilm deposits of TiO2 nanoparticle phytates based on the directed assembly methodology  is demonstrated. Alternant exposure of a tin-doped indium oxide (ITO) or gold electrode surface to aqueous solutions of TiO2 nanoparticles (3-4 % in HNO3, ca. 6 nm diameter) and phytic acid (40 mM, at pH=3) causes layer-by-layer growth of a three dimensional mesoporous structure.
