Hydrothermal procedures for the synthesis of zirconia-doped nanocrystalline powders (hydrothermal reactions and hydrothermal crystallization) show important advantages from the thermodynamic and kinetic point of view (larger domain stability of precipitated species, faster kinetics of crystallization) as well as from technological point of view (direct synthesis of crystalline materials in one-step process, low synthesis temperatures, better control of the crystallization and grain sizes with possibilities to obtain nanocrystalline materials, versatility, environmental friendly technology).
