Synthesis of TiNi Particles in High Temperature Molten Salts


Article Preview

. NiTi particles were prepared by the reaction between Ti and Ni powders in high temperature molten salts. Results of differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) confirmed the martensitic transformation of the prepared NiTi particles. Backscatter electron image of scanning electron microscopy (SEM) showed that the synthesized NiTi particles were captured by the molten salts, which revealed the mechanism of the chemical synthesis method in molten salts.
