Paper Abstract

Sol-gel technique is a method for producing of glass-like materials without involving a melting process. Organic compounds such as alcoholates of silicon, sodium or calcium can be used. The irregular non-crystalline network forms a gel structure where the metallic atoms are bonded to oxygen atoms. Low-temperature treatment turns this gel into an inorganic glass-like structure. There are numbers of applications of these materials that can be produced in various forms and shapes. Here, silica based sol-gel bulks and thin films optodes for biomedical applications will be presented.
