Multilayer ZrO2 Precursor Coated Polystyrene Particles
Monodispersed ZrO2 (includes 8mol % Y2O3) precursor nanoparticles, which were well dispersed in aqueous solution, were successfully synthesized. The as-synthesized ZrO2 precursor nanoparticles were homogenously coated on the surface of polystyrene particles. Multilayer coating process was successfully implemented by using polyacrylic acid (PAA) to modify the surface charges of the coated particles, which was characterized by zeta-potential, particles size distribution and scanning electron microscopy (SEM).
