Abstract : Research was carried out to apply a known method of obtaining thin (approximately 1000 Angstroms) films by organometallic solution decomposition, to new materials of interest for environmental protection and temperature control. Metallic nickel films were obtained from nickel resinate solution. Stable organic complexes of aluminum alkyls were used to deposit metallic aluminum films. The intermetallic NiAl was identified in a film made from a solution of these two metals. A chromium film was obtained from a solution of a thiophene complex of chromium hexacarbonyl. Thin films of oxides of silicon, cerium, aluminum, zirconium, titanium, vanadium, tantalum, yttrium and boron were also made from resinate solutions heated in the absence of air, thus widening the potential of oxide films to substrates which can not be heated in air. A literature survey of the synthesis of organometallic compounds for use in decorative thin film applications is included. Typical technical uses of thin films obtained by this method are also described. (Author)
