    • Abstract

       

      Gel has been prepared with nickel chloride and glucose in the starting solution followed by heat treatment at higher temperature, where glucose decomposes to carbon and water vapour, which in turn react to form hydrogenin situ to reduce nickel chloride to metallic nickel. The presence and distribution of nickel granules in the microcomposite, has been established by transmission electron microscopy, selected area diffraction and electron paramagnetic resonance analysis.
