Characterization of Fe2O3-CaO-SiO2 Glass Ceramics Prepared by Sol-Gel


Article Preview

Ferromagnetic glass ceramics with magnetism and biological activity could be used for magnetic induction hyperthermia. In this study Fe2O3-CaO-SiO2 glass-ceramics were prepared by sol-gel method. The sample was characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and differential thermal analysis (DTA). The results showed that the major phases of the sample are wollastonite and magnetite and the crystallization activation energy of sample is 189.3KJ/mol, which would provide a theoretical basis for the establishment of the optimum process conditions of heat treatment technology.
