The effects of some synthesis parameters, such as alcohol/alcoxide and water/alcoxide molar ratios, type of solvent and reaction temperature, on the physical and crystalline characteristics of ZrO2 prepared by the sol-gel method were studied. The results show that gelling time, weight loss, surface area, pore-size distribution and crystalline phases were influenced by the preparation conditions.
