Abstract : The patent is directed to the making of ultrahigh purity, in escess of 99.9% by weight, metal oxide particles of extremely small size below 100 angstroms in diameter. The particles are made by causing the decomposition of selected metal-organic compounds in the vapor phase without the use of any heated or catalytic substrate. The products are used as catalysts, as absorbents, as refractory oxide bodies for use in high temperature environments, as heat shields, leading edges of wings, as rocket nozzle liners, as thermal and electrical insulators, as nose cone materials, as ceramic electronic device parts, and the like.
