A sol-gel and a freeze-casting process are used to produce tablet-like bodies without the standard compression. The advantage is that temperature sensible materials can be produced in tablet-like forms, thus other cost intensive production processes like capsulation or freeze drying are avoided. Different ways are introduced to characterize the suspension and the tablet. Herewith the influences of parameters like composition of the materials or freezing conditions on the final products should be clarified.
