Understanding nanoparticle formation reactions requires multitechnique in situ characterisation, since no single characterisation technique
provides adequate information. Here, the first combined small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS)/wide-angle X-ray scattering (WAXS)/total-scattering study of nanoparticle formation is presented. We report on the formation and growth of yttria-stabilised zirconia (YSZ) under the extreme conditions of
supercritical methanol for particles with Y2O3 equivalent molar fractions of 0, 4, 8, 12 and 25%.
