Hi all, this is my first post. I am a newbie in metal oxide synthesis.
I hope i can learn many things in this forum
I have a question. I have read some references regarding synthesis of MgLa oxide.
In one reference, they used KOH solution to precipitate the metal oxide precursor, and they called this method as precipitation method. The other researcher used the mixture of KOH and K2CO3 to precipitate the metal precursor, and they called this method as co-precipitation method.
My silly question is what is the difference between precipitation and co-precipitation method, is the difference only in the type of precipitation agent (single precipitation agent and mixture of precipitation agent)? And I think the use of different precipitation agent will impact the ratio of Mg/La in the final product, is it correct?
