Synthesis of Ultrafine MgAl2O4 Powders by Nitrate-Citrate Sol-Gel Combustion Process

Abstract:

Article Preview

Ultrafine MgAl2O4 powders were synthesized by a nitrate-citrate sol-gel combustion process using Al(NO3)3·9H2O, Mg(NO3)2·6H2O and C6H8O7·H2O as initial materials. The result of X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis indicated that single-phase MgAl2O4 powder could be obtained at 850 oC, which is much lower than that needed in solid-state reactions. Transmission electron microscopy image showed that the as-prepared powder was in the nano scale and little agglomerate exited. It is concluded that this process need shorter time, lower temperature, and simple equipments.
