Method for the Preparation of Metal Oxides in Nanometric Particle Form

Number: 7,485,282
Year: 2009
Patent Status: Issued
Authors: Pinnavaia, T.J., S.S. Kim

A process is described for the synthesis of metal oxides in a nanometric particle form that cannot be easily obtained by conventional bulk synthesis techniques. The method makes use of Colloid Occluded Carbons (COC) and Colloid Imprinted Carbons (CIC) as reagents and as templating agents for the preparation of metal oxides in nanometric particle form. The nanometric particles are suitable useful in the field of chemical catalysis, particularly for petroleum refining when in porous form, and as sensors, optical wave guides, and coatings.
