Physico-chemical Analysis of Ceramic Material Systems: From Macro- to Nanostate

  • Vladimir Ya. ShevchenkoEmail author
Part of the Hot Topics in Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry book series (HTTC, volume 11)


The historical aspects of ceramic production, as well as the modern approaches to the technical side of ceramic production, especially solgel technology as the path to modern nanotechnologies, are discussed. It is pointed out that the most essential significance of the nanostate for the applied sciences lies in the possibility of merging the inorganic, organic, and biological worlds, thus creating a prodigious number of new materials.
