Proceedings of the First All-Russian Conference “Sol-Gel Synthesis and Study of Inorganic Compounds, Hybrid Functional Materials, and Disperse Systems” (St. Petersburg, Russia, November 22–24, 2010)


The synthesis of ultradispersed powders of the yttrium aluminum garnet (activated by ions of cerium, lithium, silicon, and manganese) by the combustion method in the presence of hexamethylenetetramine has been optimized. The structural, physicochemical, and spectral-luminescence properties of synthesized finely dispersed samples have been studied. It has been found that exclusively the phase of garnet Y3Al5O12 of the cubic modification is identified in the products of the synthesis performed under optimum condition.
