Advanced Materials Research
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.
