Hydrothermal synthesis is a soft chemical method with versatility in producing a large class of nanostructured materials in the form of powders and thin films. The main advantages come from the low crystallization temperature done in one-step process, avoiding thermal treatments usually required in other processes. In situ functionalisation became thus possible. The microstructure of bulk and thin films obtained using this approach may open new applications to materials for biosensors, implants or substrates for growing biological cells.
