Attempts have been made to synthesis titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanoparticles using titanium (IV) complexes of Schiff base (TiOL) as a precursor where Schiff base ligand (L) act as a dibasic tetradentate one. TiO2 nanoparticles were synthesized by the direct calcination of titanium complexes at 500 °C for 3 hours. The analytical tools such as FT-IR, XRD, EDS, and SEM provided evidences in favor of the formation of TiO2 nanoparticles. Antimicrobial study showed that all prepared TiO2 nanoparticles have inhibition capacity on the growth against selected plant pathogenic fungi as well as some selected human pathogenic bacteria. Moreover, these TiO2 nanoparticles have catalytic capacity for the remarkable degradation (54.0%) of organic dye (Mordent brown 48) as well as industrial dye solutions.
