Synthesis of Nano-Crystalline Ceramic powders by Chemical Process

Pathak, L C (2002) Synthesis of Nano-Crystalline Ceramic powders by Chemical Process. In: Proceedings of the Indo-Malaysian Joint Workshop(WAM-2002), 12-13 March, 2002, National Metallurgical Laboratory, Jamshedpur.



Several processes were developed by our research group to synthesise nanocrystalline ceramic materials. Amongst them, the im,estigation of the new, simple and versatile technique to generate ultra fine powders of advanced ceramic oxides using a chemical pyrophoric reaction and sot-gel techniques are noteworthy. In the solution comb-ustion technique, the role of pH on the morphology of the synthesised powder was attributedto the redox reaction. These pyrophoricallp generated precursors could also be utilised to synthesise nano-crystalline aluminium nitride powders at low temperatures using carbotherntic process. An economically feasible alkoxide based solgel process for the production of high purity nano-crystalline alumina powders was established and several subsequent processes to generate nanospheres to micro spheres were investi-gated. This increased the potential of these high pure nano-crystalline spherical alumina powders for practical applications in spray coating on industrial components, fabrication of envelope for sodium vapour lamp, hip joints and IC substrate.
