Preparation of Nano-Size PbTiO3 Particles and its Characteristics on the Adsorption of Organic Acids
The nano-size PbTiO3 particles were prepared by sol-gel method and the effects of processing variables such as concentration of sol solution, catalyst, concentration of catalyst, calcination temperature and calcination process on particle size of PbTiO3 were analyzed. The condition for preparation of sol solution from the precursor is very critical to the size of PbTiO3 particle. At certain experimental conditions, the particles of 129nm, 213nm and 343nm were obtained. However, the particle size of commercialized PbTiO3 powder was 5㎛(5,000nm). The prepared nano-size PbTiO3 powder adsorbed more acetic acid and formic acid than the commercialized one; 1.5 times for acetic acid and 1.2 times for formic acid. Formic acid was preferentially adsorbed than acetic acid.
