Applications for powders vary; benefits can be seen from the form as well as the general properties of the specific material. For example, the large surface-area-to-volume ratio makes certain metal powders suitable for use as catalysts. Fine powder of certain materials is also easy to dissolve in a solvent for casting thin films. In addition, powders can be used to produce porous structures by sintering.
