Published Version.


A method for producing particles having at least regions of at least one metal oxide having nano-sized grains comprises providing particles of material having an initial, non-equiaxed particle shape, making a mixture of the particles of material and one or more precursors of the metal oxide, and treating the mixture such that the one or more precursors of the metal oxide react with the particles of material to thereby form at least regions of metal oxide on or within the particles, wherein atoms from the particles of material form part of a matrix of the at least one metal oxide and the at least one metal oxide has nano-sized grains and wherein at least some of the regions of metal oxide on or within the particles have a non-equiaxed grain shape.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
