Sol-gel process for synthesis of nanoparticles and applications thereof

Pratikhya Badanayak and Jyoti V Vastrad
The use of sol‐gel technology in leather processing processes has received huge attention in recent years. Being a chemical-oriented process sol-gel offers several benefits in medical, optical, textile, and other sectors. Particularly, it enables multifunctional properties in a single step, which is not possible due to the incompatibility of chemical materials with conventional textile finishing methods. On the other hand, the sol-gel technology has several shortcomings, including high precursor material costs. In general, metal alkoxides and metal salts have been used as precursors in sol-gel technology. In this paper, some of the extensive reports regarding the mechanism, types, processing, and steps involved in sol-gel technology were highlighted. An attempt was made to enlighten the different applications of sol-gel, especially in textiles. Rather than its advantages and disadvantages, some of the next-generation applications of sol-gel were also reported.
