Chinese Ceramics Communications III
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
Powders are root materials for ceramics, as the starting compositions to prepare bulks or films. In addition, powders are usually used as additives for metals, polymers and composites. In general, the characteristics and performances of the powders dominate the properties and quality of final materials or products. Therefore, the importance of powders, including synthesizing and testing, will never be overstated. The objective of 2012 Workshop on the Synthesis, Characterization and applications of inorganic powders, therefore, is to provide a forum for researchers, engineers and students, to disseminate their latest research results and exchange experimental views concerning the latest developments in the novel technology to fabricate and analyze ceramic powders and also the preparation and characterization of bulk ceramics. The present Proceedings collected 73 papers presented in this Workshop.
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: Hu (Kumming U. of Science and Technology, China) et al. present 73 papers from the 2012 Workshop on Synthesis, Characterization, and Applications of Inorganic Powders, convened in July 2012 in Guilin, China. Chinese scientists working in materials science and technology, ceramics, engineering, chemistry, physics and electronics, stomatology, and other fields address topics such as the effects of preparation methods, reaction synthesis, phase and microstructure evolution, characterization, properties, morphology, fabrication, solution phase synthesis, microstructure observation and analysis, property improvement, crystallization and photocatalytic-activity, and the influence of heat treatment on various powders. The volume is the second in a set of 140 papers from the workshop.
