Zirconia-based ZrO2-In2O3 nanocrystals are prepared by hydrothermal treatment of coprecipitated zirconium oxyhydroxide and indium hydroxide. Indium oxide is shown to dissolve predominantly in cubic zirconia nanocrystals. Its solubility in nanocrystalline zirconia notably exceeds the equilibrium In2O3 solubility in ZrO2 single crystals.
