Abstract

The ability of ionic liquids to completely solvate inorganic salts has to date never been employed in the synthesis of complex inorganic materials. Here, we demonstrate that complex functional oxides, even those traditionally considered extremely difficult to synthesize in bulk, such as quinternary superconductors, are produced with no impurity phases and on timescales that are much shorter than other synthetic techniques.
