Synthesis and Characterization of Nanosized ITO Powders by Glycothermal Processing


Article Preview

Nanosized ITO(indium tin oxide) powders were prepared in ethylene glycol solution under mild temperature and pressure conditions by precipitation from metal nitrates with aqueous potassium hydroxide. The average size and distribution of the synthesized ITO powders were about 20 ㎚ and broad, respectively. The phase of synthesized particles was crystalline reacted at 230 0C for 6 h.. The optical properties of the synthesized ITO powders were transparent.
