Summary

Adding a drying control chemical additive (DCCA) to the solvent allows quicker drying of metal-organic derived gels and influences the gelation process and chemical properties of the resulting gels. Behavior of monoliths prepared by different chemical methods is reported. The thermal evolution of the gel monoliths was followed using FTIR spectroscopy.
