Inorganic synthesis: new tendencies and new potentials

Full Text:


This paper briefly reviews some perspective methods of synthesis successfully used in recent years in inorganic chemistry. Emphasis is placed on spark plasma sintering, synthesis in flux metal and synthesis of nanoparticles and clusters in ionic liquids. Besides, the paper briefly discusses some other approaches to inorganic synthesis, the use of which is perspective in the near future.
