pH effects on sol-gel synthesis

The sol-gel synthesis can be obtained from metallo-organic compounds using alkoxides as precursors. Alkoxides with a M(OR)n structure, where M is a metal or a metalloid and R is an alkyl group (R = CH3, C2H5, …). Such chemicals are dispersed in a solvent (usually organic, ethyl alcohol) and react in an pH controlled medium. In this post,… Continue reading pH effects on sol-gel synthesis
