Provisional Recommendations

Definitions of Terms Relating to the Structure and Processing of Inorganic and Polymeric Gels and Networks

This document defines terms related to the structure and processing of inorganic, polymeric, and hybrid inorganic-polymeric materials from precursors, through gels, to solid products. The document is divided into four sections—Precursors, Gels, Solids, and Processes—and the terms have been restricted to those most commonly encountered.

For the sake of completeness, in cases in which they are already satisfactorily defined, terms from other IUPAC publications have been used. In all other cases, the terms have been assembled and their definitions developed in consultation with experts in the relevant fields. The definitions are intended to assist the reader who is unfamiliar with sol-gel processing, ceramization, or related technologies and materials, and to serve as a guide to the standard terminology used by researchers in these areas.
