<正> Nanocrystalline solid solution CeO2-Nd2O3 powders were prepared by low temperature combustion process. Special attention was paid to the influence of the glycine/metal ratio and calcination temperature on the powders phase structure, morphology and particle size. TG-DSC curves and XRD peaks of different glycine/metal ratio show that smaller particle size can be obtained with a slightly fuel-deficient ratio. XRD results indicate that the as-prepared powders are crystallized in a single fluorite structure. The crystalline size ranges from 9 to 24 nm, which increases with the increase of calcination temperature. The lower SEM images were characterized by the spongy and form-like microstruc-ture of the powders. Organic agent may be gradually eliminated by high temperature calcination process.
