The Synthesis of Indium Tin Oxide Nano – Powders by Solvothermal Process
Well-crystallized and nano-sized indium tin oxide (ITO) powders were prepared by a solvothermal process from a mixed solution consisting of indium nitrate and tin chloride. The characteristics of the solvothermally synthesized ITO powders were studied to investigate the contribution of the processing variables on the physico-chemical properties of powders. The results of this study show that the nano-sized blue ITO powders with a single phase could be directly obtained by changing the medium from water to organic solvent.
