Abstract

Precursor solid solutions provide convenient routes for preparing complex metal oxides. Hydroxide solid solutions of the general formula $Ln_{1-x}M_x(OH)_3$ (where Ln = La or Nd and M = Al, Cr, Fe, Co, or Ni) and $La_{1-x-y}M'_xM″_y(OH)_3$ (where M′ = Ni and M″ = Co or Cu) crystallize in the rare earth trihydroxide structure and can be decomposed at relatively low temperatures to yield complex metal oxides. Several oxides of the type $LaNiO_3$, $NdNiO_3$, $LaNi_{1-x}Co_xO_3$, and $LaNi_{1-x}Cu_xO_3$ have been prepared by the hydroxide precursor route. Thermal decomposition of cyanide precursors of the type $Ln[M_{1-x}M′_x(CN)_6]$· $5H_2O$ and $Ln_{1-x}Ln′_x[M(CN)_6]$· $5H_2$O yields the quaternary oxides which are not readily made by ceramic methods. Nitrate solid solution precursors of the type $Ba_{1-x}Pb_x(NO_3)_2$, $Sr_{1-x}Pb_x(NO_3)_2$, and $BaSrPb(NO_3)_6$ have been used for preparing several interesting oxides such as $BaPbO_3$, $Ba_2PbO_4$, and $BaSrPbO_4$.
