Synthesis of V-ZrSiO4 Blue Ceramic Pigments
Vanadium doped zircon pigments were prepared by ceramic method from mixture of monoclinic zirconia and silica and sodium fluoride as mineralizer on the colour properties of the pigments was also investigated. The colour of synthesized pigments observed in the absence and the presence of the NaF was green and blue, respectively. They were characterized by X-ray diffraction and UV-Vis spectroscopy.
