dc.description.abstractIn the modern day scenario, utilization of nanomaterials in diverse fields has become obligatory to resolve the needs and desires. Owing to their optical, electronic and catalytic properties, the preparation of nanomaterials has been given a greater significance. Especially, the nano-sized metal oxides are well-intentioned for various applications including sensors, solar cells, photocatalysis, storage devices, anti-reflection coatings, optical waveguides, environmental remediation, and biological applications. The size, shape and performance of the metal oxide nanoparticles can also be dictated by the synthetic method by which they have been made. Numerous preparative methods are reported such as combustion, solid state, sol gel, hydrothermal, vapor deposition (physical and chemical), mechanochemical synthesis etc. Sol gel method is a cost-effective and most common synthetic approach among all, due to its simplicity and flexibility. The existing sol gel procedure is limited by reaction time, scalability and ease of doping. Therefore, an improved, general and versatile synthetic approach is required, which can be used to tune the material property and thereby to enhance the performance. newlineIn the first chapter, various synthetic procedures for the preparation of metal oxide nanomaterials are discussed. This emphasises the importance of the polymerizable sol gel approach towards the synthesis of supported metal oxide nanomaterials and fabrication of metal oxide micro and nanostructures. The properties and the different characterization techniques to analyze the prepared materials are also mentioned. A brief description on the applications of the metal oxides micro/nanostructures are given at the end of this chapter. newlineIn the chapter 2, the reagents and chemicals used for the synthesis and applications are given. Various analytical instruments that were utilized for the characterization of materials have also been listed in this chapter. newlineIn the chapter 3, a polymerizable sol-gel method has been employed to synthesize ta
