What is ZrO2?
Zircoa Zirconia Powder (Zirconium Oxide, ZrO2) is
synthesized from zircon sand (ZrO2 ·SiO2) using a solid-state reaction process.
Zircoa’s manufacturing process yields a consistently high purity zirconia
composed of monoclinic phase particles. While zirconia (ZrO2) finds extensive
use as a ceramic material, it also has important catalyst applications. Due to
its unique chemical properties (i.e., surface acidity and basicity), it is a
valuable catalyst for elimination, dehydration, hydrogenation, and oxidation. As
reported previously, the properties of tetragonal zirconia (t-ZrO2) employed in
the applications above highly depend on the precursors used for its
preparation. Most interest has focused on preparing a stable ZrO2 powder at
<450°C using different precursors, including zirconium carboxylates. The
latter can be prepared straightforwardly by reacting sodium carboxylate with an
aqueous zirconium salt solution, linking zirconium cations to the carboxylate
anions. One of the most widely used precursors for synthesizing zirconia may be
zirconium acetate-based ones. For example, zirconium tetraacetate can be
prepared by the reaction of zirconium tetrachloride with an excess of acetic
acid at 80°C. Refluxing the mixture to the boiling point produces the formation
of zirconium oxaloacetate.
What kind of ceramic is ZrO2?
Zirconium oxyacetate, Zr4O3(CH3COO)10·3H2O, can also be
prepared by refluxing a small amount of zirconium oxychloride with acetic acid.
Recently, Guo and Chen reported a novel zirconium oxy-hydroxy acetate complex
synthesized from zirconium oxychloride and acetic acid solution, followed by
precipitation with concentrated ammonium hydroxide at pH = 6. The product was
determined to be Zr4O3(OH)7(CH3COO)3·5H2O and produced a tetragonal zirconium
oxide phase with a crystallite size of 30 nm when pyrolyzed at 545°C.
Regardless of the numerous studies, few studies have been carried out to
investigate the preparation of zirconia from zirconium carboxylates complexes
with varying R-groups and their influence on the oxides’ properties. Therefore
we recently reported a benchmark study using zirconium benzilate as a
single-source precursor for synthesizing zirconia. To more systematically
understand the synthesis approach, the zirconia synthesis was executed with various
carboxylate complexes derived from aliphatic and α-hydroxyl
carboxylic acids. In addition, periodic density functional theory (DFT)
simulations were applied to support the experimental observation from infrared
What is the hardness of zirconia
Zirconium oxide (Zirconia) is an extremely tough ceramic
with a hardness of >9 Mohs, making it an excellent material for extreme
wear, high temperature, and harsh environment applications. The most common
oxide is zirconium dioxide, ZrO2, or Zirconia. This clear-to-white-colored
solid has exceptional fracture toughness (for a ceramic) and chemical
resistance, especially in its cubic form. Zirconium Oxide (ZrO2), also known as
Zirconia, is a ceramic highly resistant to corrosion, abrasion, and stress from
repetitive collisions due to the properties of corrosion resistance, heat
resistance, and high hardness, durability, and strength. Zirconium Oxide or
Zirconia Nanopowder or Nanoparticles (ZrO2), nanodots or nanocrystals are white
high surface area particles available in monoclinic or as stabilized or doped
with yttria (yttrium oxide), calcium (calcium oxide), or magnesia (magnesium
oxide), or phosphorized Zirconia.
