Co-precipitation is a simple, economical and industrially viable technique that can be used for the synthesis of technologically important oxide materials. The steps involved in the process are shown schematically in the flow chart. Using this process, it is possible to prepare flowable powders without any additional agglomeration steps. One can tailor the process to get nano or micron size particles by adjusting the pH, the precipitating agent, temperature and solvents. This process has been successfully used for the preparation of ceramic oxide powders suitable for suspension plasma spraying and powder plasma spraying.
