Enhancing dopant solubility through Pechini Synthesis

 

The Pechini method involves chelation and polymerisation of cations, prior to a combustion step which produces an inorganic solid following sufficient time/temperature. The homoegeneity of the polymeric precursor, obtained usually with the aid of ethylene glycol seems to improve the dispersion of the cation dopants in the obtained crystalline solid.
