  • Patent number: 6074471
    Abstract: This invention relates to metal oxides based films and a method for their production via a sol-gel route using metal bis(.beta.-diketonate) salts as precursors. They can be conveniently doped by Group (III), (IV) or (V) impurities and may be used to provide coductive coating on optically transparent substrates such as glass, ceramics or polymers.

  • Patent number: 4579724
    Abstract: A low-temperature synthesis of M.sup.II PS.sub.3 (M preferably Fe, Co or Ni) comprises mixing M.sup.2+ cation with P.sub.2 S.sub.6.sup.4- anion; if insoluble, M.sup.II PS.sub.3 precipitates; otherwise, M.sup.2+ cation can be supplied off an M.sup.2+ -cation-exchange resin through which Na.sub.4 P.sub.2 S.sub.6 solution is trickled. The product is X-ray amorphous, and is brought to a desirable degree of partial order by heating at 350.degree. C. for 3 hours. In this form it can reversibly intercalate lithium and, mixed with binder and graphite, is a cathode for a lithium rechargeable cell.
