Densification of Vanadium Nitride by Microwave-Assisted Carbothermal Nitridation


Article Preview

A microwave carbonthermal nitridation method under the condition of nitrogen at atmospheric pressure was used to the synthesis of vanadium nitride from vanadium pentoxide and carbon black. In the present work, the effects of synthesis temperature, flowing rate of nitrogen, heating rate and soaking time on the apparent density and the nitrogen content of the microwave sintered samples were studied. The experimental data indicated that the apparent density and the nitrogen content of the microwave sinter sample was 4.1 g/cm3 and 13.8 %, respectively under the optimum conditions of flowing rate of nitrogen 50 L/h, heating rate of 6 °C/min to 1400 °C and soaking time of 50 min. The denser pellet was preferred to generated in the centre of the samples of which was beneficial to the expulsion of stoma and the diffusion of nitrogen due to the opposite temperature gradient compared with traditional heating.
