Soft Solution Processing: A Strategy for One-Step Processing of Advanced Inorganic Materials

  • Masahiro Yoshimura, Wojciech L. Suchanek and Kullaiah Byrappa


The term “materials cycle” is generally used to describe the synthesis of substances from raw materials (sometimes including the synthesis of manufactured raw materials), the fabrication of shaped materials, their use, and their eventual disposal. It is well known that all materials are extracted from the earth, then are converted to functional products through various fabrication processes, usually involving a high expenditure of energy, which in turn contributes to environmental problems such as global warming.
