The presence of persistent hydroxide (-OH) groups in nano-crystals of ZrO2 is expected to affect its chemical reactivity, and to increase hydrophilicity of the crystal nano-surfaces. On the other hand, the -OH groups may dump - through the quenching - luminescence of fluorochromes added to the zirconium dioxide. Therefore probing of -OH groups in preparations of ZrO2 is of technological interest.
