Novel transport models were used to optimize critical diffusion phenomena that occur during the evaporation induced synthesis of ordered zirconia and ceria-zirconia-yttria mesostructures. Such advances will enable these highly useful catalytic materials to be prepared in a uniform and reproducible manner at pilot and industrial scales.
