Highlights •Hydrothermal method enhances the integration of N species into TiO2.•TiO2 doping with nitrogen prevents the phase transformation from anatase to rutile.•The N-doped TiO2 exhibits nanorice-like morphology.•Nitrogen atom incorporates into the lattice of TiO2 with interstitial site (TiON).•Nitrogen doping content in TiO2 accelerates the kinetic rate of photocatalytic reaction.
