Hydrothermal Synthesis

From Sciwiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

A hydrothermal synthesis is a reaction performed in water at an elevated temperature. A stainless steel/teflon autoclave may be used to achieve temperatures higher than one can achieve at ambient pressure, up to 150-250 degrees C. Don't fill an autoclave all the way.


Do not put in any reactants that will irreversibly decompose to gas without extreme caution. Closed systems can be dangerous.
