A novel low temperature method has been developed to produce nanosized crystalline materials. The method, a Supercritical Seed Enhanced Crystallization (SSEC) process, was shown to lower the crystallization temperature for several metal oxides by a factor 2-3. The crystallinity and particle size of the produced powder can be altered by adjusting the process parameters.
