The compositional analysis done on the synthesized undoped and cobalt (Co)-doped titanium dioxide ( TiO2) nanoparticles by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and energy dispersive X-ray analysis suggests oxygen deficiency in undoped and Co-doped TiO2 samples. Magnetic investigations by vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM) indicate that undoped TiO2 nanoparticles possess ferromagnetic ordering at room temperature due to the oxygen deficiency and in Co-doped TiO2, the enhancement in magnetic moment is due to Co doping.
