Biomorphic SnO2/C Ceramics Derived from Bio-Templates
Biomorphic SnO2/C ceramic has been prepared by molding into a composite billet and carbothermal-reduction under vacuum from ramie fibers/Sn(OH)4 precursors. The phase composition and microstructure of the prepared samples were characterized. The effects of the carbonization temperature and the other factors on the crystal structure, morphology and ingredients of the prepared samples were discussed. The results showed that there is no peak corresponding to carbon. So, it is inferred that the carbon exists in amorphous form and the sintering temperature have significant effects on the microstructure of SnO2 in biomorphic SnO2/C ceramics. The prepared products at the sintering temperature between 480°C and 630°C are biomorphic SnO2/C ceramics.
