Two series of xerogels (desiccated hydrogels), one consisting of single phases and the other of two phases, were prepared from organic and inorganic precursors in the system Al2o3‐Sio2. The effect of these nanostructural differences in the xerogel powders on the energy content and behavior on heating were studied using DTA, powder X‐ray diffraction, and ultrafast heating on a strip furnace. The results demonstrate that diphasic xerogels are substantially different materials from single‐phase xerogels of the same composition.
