The Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry organized QUIES2016, the 17th Scientific Meeting on Inorganic Chemistry and 11th Meeting on Solid State Chemistry, at Torremolinos, Málaga, (Spain), from 19 to 22 June 2016.
Prof. María Elena Villafuerte-Castrejón gave a talk on “Piezoceramic Materials without Pb: a Synthesis Challenge“. This work reviews a number of synthesis methods, including solid state reaction and Pechini routes, for the processing of ceramics based on of BaTiO3, Ba1-xCaxTi1-yZryO3 and (Bi0.5Na0.5)TiO3.
A poster on the cooperation with Prof. E. Morán of the Dpt. of Inorganic Chemistry of the School of Chemistry (Complutense University of Madrid) is also presented on “Microwave assisted hydrothermal synthesis of Ba1-xCaxTiO3“, authors: P. Salcedo, E.Morán, M.E. Villafuerte-Castrejón, R. Vivar-Ocampo and L. Pardo.
