Porous MgTi2O5 ceramics with pseudobrookite-type structure have been prepared by in situ processing (viz. reactive sintering). In this communication, further studies have been carried out in order to evolve the porous MgTi2O5, viz., (1) X-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS) study of porous MgTi2O5, (2) improved in situ synthesis (i.e., more precise stoichiometric control), and (3) new "in situ surface coating," which enables in situ MgTi2O5 synthesis, in situ uniform pore formation, and in situ surface coating in only one-step heating.
