Structural characterization of beryllium and indium oxide powders

R. Yuvakkumar, V. Milton, G. Ravi, S.I. Hong

The effect of processing parameters such as reaction time, incubation and calcination temperature on the structural properties of beryllium and indium oxide powders employing a green synthesis technique has been investigated. A possible mechanism to understand the formation of metal-ellagate complex formation has been explored.
