Influence of chemical prehistory of the precursors on chemical reactions in the ZrO2—TiO2 system under hydrothermal conditions was investigated. The possibility of formation phases with fluorite-like structure (Zr,Ti)2O4 at temperature 240°C is shown, it being process of nucleation on stage of coprecipitation of hydroxides is crucial.
Keywords: nanoparticles, nanocomposites, structural transformations, ZrO2, TiO2, hydrothermal synthesis.
