X-ray diffraction patterns of selected products gained from solid-state reactions using various ratios of precursors (nGd3+/mAl3+) after irradiation at different conditions. (a) 0.3 Gd3+/0.7 Al3+ at 1000°C for 10 h, benzyl alcohol + SDS (sodium dodecyl sulfate); (b) 0.3 Gd3+/0.7 Al3+ at 1000°C for 10 h, benzyl alcohol + oleic acid; (c) 0.5 Gd3+/0.5 Al3+ at 1000°C for 10 h, benzyl alcohol + SDS; (d) 0.5 Gd3+/0.5 Al3+ at 1000°C for 10 h, benzyl alcohol + oleic acid; (e) 0.1 Gd3+/0.9 Al3+ at 1000°C for 10 h, benzyl alcohol + oleic acid; (f) 0.3 Gd3+/0.7 Al3+ at 800°C for 10 h, benzyl alcohol + SDS.
