Nanocrystalline and nanoporous ceramics, renowned for their special transport properties, have typical applications in the fields of energy, the environment, and separation technology. One example is a solid oxide fuel cell, where an anode with improved characteristics was obtained by an optimized nanoscale porous composite architecture. In this article the author also emphasizes the requirements for nanoscale compaction processing and outlines new results of nanoparticle synthesis by emulsion techniques, such as the preparation of aggregate-free oxide particles of 5-10 nm diameter.
