One of the major obstacles in the incorporation of nanomaterials in high technology is the lack of new processes for the bulk production of the materials with compositions tailored to suit the application. Oxides can potentially be reduced to metals, intermetallics or alloys by hydrogen or natural gas. The formation of homogeneous alloys and intermetallics by this method has been confirmed by a number of experimental studies. The kinetics of hydrogen reduction of pure oxides of transition metals as well as complex tungstates, molybdates, titanates, aluminates and chromate were investigated by thermogravimetry. The formation of homogeneous alloys and intermetallics was confirmed by these studies. Arrhenius activation energies of the reduction reactions could be linked to the stabilities of the complex oxides. The products were found to have nanograin structure. Bulk processing through hydrogen reduction route was examined in the case of iron molybdate using a fluidized bed reactor.
