We obtain inequalities for the weighted approximation error of Baskakov type operators and their derivatives. Such inequalities
are valid for functions of polynomial growth and are expressed in terms of weighted moduli of continuity.

Sol-gel zirconia was characterized using high-resolution thermogravimetry (Hi-Res TG) and differential scanning calorimetry
(DSC) and compared with X-ray diffraction, Raman scattering, and UV-Vis spectroscopy. ZrO2-x(OH)2x·yH2O annealed below 400°C show typical behavior of amorphous material. As the annealing temperature is increased, the tetragonal
and monoclinic phases crystallize. Typical Hi-Res TG curve shows that the samples are continuously dehydrated in a long temperature
range, between room temperature and 600°C. The total mass loss relative to the initial mass is of about 29%. The DSC analysis
coupled with TG and structural information, indicate that the exothermic processes about 355 and 447°C can be related to the
nucleation process of the formation of tetragonal zirconia, with bulk crystallization at 447°C.
