The evaporation behaviour of a ball milled SnO2powder has been investigated. It is observed that the milled powder starts to evaporate at the temperatures above 950 °C while the unmilled SnO2powder does not generate any vapor at this temperature. The effect is likely to be related to structural changes in the milled material and, particularly, a certain degree of reduction of the SnO2powder in the course of milling. The milled powder can be used as a vapor source for producing various types of nanostructures of SnO2. © 2010 Elsevier B.V.
