Synthesizing nanocomposite materials using sol-gel methodology is a cheap and effective method for creating quality U3O8 particles. To some degree acids can influence the synthesis of the nanoparticles by catalyzing the reaction. This paper presents important details comparing different acids used as catalysts in nanocomposite synthesis versus time manipulation to determine if an acid catalyst is necessary for the synthesis of U3O8/SiO2 nanocomposites.
