The use of mixed-metal single source precursors for the synthesis of complex metal oxides

Author affiliations

Abstract

Complex metal oxides, defined as metal oxide materials with multiple metals, phases or including dopants, are used in a huge variety of modern applications ranging from photocatalysis, transparent conductive materials, supercapacitors and battery components. In this feature article, the use of mixed-metal single source precursors to synthesise complex metal oxides is explored. The structures and decomposition/reaction pathways of various precursors including mixed-metal alkoxides, complexes with chelating ligands, clusters, polyoxometallates, and metal–organic frameworks are discussed. The advantages and opportunities of using a single source precursor strategy are investigated and highlighted.
