Our news editors obtained a quote from the research, "Different synthesis conditions were studied to pursue pure and uniform skutterudite CoSb3 powders. The powders were characterized by X-ray diffraction, field emission scanning electron microscope, and energy-dispersive X-ray analysis. Experimental results show that a Ni-doped skutterudite Co1-xNixSb3 single phase was obtained at 290 degrees C for 12 h. The powders are spherical, small, and uniform."
According to the news editors, the research concluded: "As x increases from 0 to 0.25, the unit-cell parameter a increases from 0.9044 to 0.9065 nm and the particle size increases from 10 to 30 nm."
