Synthesis of V2O5 Powders by EDTA Assistance Ultrasound Sol-Gel Process
V2O5 powders were successfully synthesized by the EDTA assistanced ultrasound sol-gel process using NH4VO3 and EDTA, NH3•H2O as raw materials. The synthesized activation energy and the influence of pH values and the calcination temperatures on the phases and microstructures of powders were particularly investigated. The precursor powders and the V2O5 powders were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), fourier transform inelectron microscopy (FT-IR), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and differential scanning calorimetry-thermal gravimetric (DSC-TG). Results show that the obtained products exhibit good crystallization under the conditions of pH=4, calcination temperature 400~500 °C and calcination time 0.5 h during the synthesizing process. The as-prepared V2O5 powders show preferred growth orientation along (001) plane at the pH=4. By DSC analysis, the ultrasonic cavitation result in the decrease in synthesized activation energy obviously than that was prepared without ultrasonic irradiation.
