A process called 'soft solution processing' has been introduced to fabricate advanced solid state materials in an economical, environmental friendly, and energy and material efficient way. A concise discussion of how to improve the synthetic conditions and how to extend the applied system is given. The successful examples show that soft solution processing is capable of preparing advanced materials with planned properties through the easy control of reaction conditions in a suitable aqueous solution in a single synthetic step without huge energy consumption for sintering or melting and without any sophisticated equipment.
