Sol-Gels are used to make protective coatings, thin films, fibers, and can be a precursor for producing nano-powders. For this reason, sol-gels find applications in electro-optic components, piezoelectric devices, resistors, and biomedical uses (biosensors, catalyst support, and optomechanical uses).
In bottles, fully dispersed in water
Varies. Depends on metal oxide.
Sol-Gel is considered sustainable due to its low environmental impact and energy consumption during production. It is a versatile and efficient method of creating materials with tailored properties for various applications such as optics, catalysis, and sensing. Additionally, sol-gel technology promotes the circular economy by enabling the use of waste materials as precursors, thereby reducing waste and conserving natural resources. Sol-Gel-Derived Materials can also be recycled at the end of their useful life, further contributing to a more sustainable future.
