Liquid-to-solid route for preparing a doped metal oxide (powder) shows advantage on the homogeneity of the precursor as well as the product. Heat treatment plays important role in the process where the salt of precursor in the liquid reacts to form metal oxide solid particles. Understanding the effect of heat treatment in the doping process will then give great advantages. In the present study, different heat-treatment profiles had been applied to increase the efficiency of doping.
