Ozone-mediated synthesis of ceria nanoparticles

Author affiliations


We report a rapid, room temperature methodology to synthesize fluorite-structured ceria nanoparticles using cerium(III) salts and ozone in the presence of short chain primary, secondary, and tertiary alcohols. This simple technique produced nanoparticles with higher oxygen vacancy compared to that of bulk ceria.
