Morphology Control of Cobalt Oxalate Particles under the Action of Pulsed Electromagnetic Field
It is very important for spheroidic metal cobalt powders production to control the morphology of cobalt oxalate powders precursor. The spheroidic cobalt oxalate powders were prepared by conventional precipitation when a pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) was introduced. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) images and X-ray powder diffraction (XRD) were used to characterize morphologies and phase structures of the cobalt oxalate powders. The research results show that a pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) play a key role in the process of preparation of spheroidic cobalt oxalate powders. In addition, a possible morphology control mechanism was preliminarily discussed based on the effects of PEMF on the process of growth of cobalt oxalate particles.
