Two-step hydrothermal method was used to prepare undoped and boron-doped one-dimensional titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanotubes. Structural properties, thermal stability and microstructural features of the fabricated undoped titanium dioxide nanotubes (TNTs) and boron-doped titanium dioxide nanotubes (BTNTs) were characterized by X-ray diffraction, Raman, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, nitrogen adsorption-desorption isotherms, scanning and transmission electron microscopy techniques. The photocatalytic activity of the fabricated nanotubes was evaluated by using methylene blue degradation. Boron addition to the titanium dioxide nanotubes up to 5% increased the photocatalytic methylene blue degradation efficiency. The achieved highest degradation efficiency was 81% and it was determined that higher (>5%) boron doped into the titanium dioxide nanotubes resulted in a decreased degradation efficiency.
