Study on Preparation of Spherical Zirconia Powder in Microemulsion System and its Surface Characteristics
In this paper, a W/O microemulsion system composed of cyclohexane / water / TritonX-100 / hexyl alcohol is adopted to prepare ultrafine spherical zirconia powder via the reaction between the precipitant and zirconium salt solved in the nano reactors. Furthermore, the powder’s surface characteristics and aqueous dispersibility that strongly depends on the post-treatment process are investigated thoroughly.
