Based on the method of combined crystallization, a low-temperature technology for the synthesis of nanocrystalline compounds with a spinel structure (MgAl2O4, MgCr2O4, and NiCo2O4) has been developed. The effect of ultrasonic treatment on the dispersity of crystal hydrates formed during synthesis has been demonstrated. Mesoporous ceramic samples of MgAl2O4 and MgCr2O4 with bimodal pore size distribution have been synthesized. The temperature dependence of the specific electrical conductivity of spinels has been studied and it has been established that the conductivity of the inverted spinel (NiCo2O4) is substantially higher than that of regular spinels (MgAl2O4, MgCr2O4).
