Summary

Protective oxide coatings can be applied to metals and ceramics from solutions containing metal alkoxides. These coatings include silica, Mania, and alumina. The coatings are applied by dipping or spinning at room temperature, after which they are calcined to oxide and densified with heating. Both amorphous and crystalline coatings can be obtained, which are typically a few microns in thickness.
