- Curing processes enabling transformation of liquid threads into solid material have gained technological importance. Our study is focusing on the comparison of curing mechanisms for metal alkoxide-derived liquid threads. We studied the mechanisms of the formation of fine metal oxide fibers or hollow microtubes by comparing the solidification of propoxide and butoxide precursors.
