Abstract: This paper shows how phase equilibria and thermodynamic properties of various multicomponent oxide systems can be represented with the use of model equations for the Gibbs energies of all phases as functions of temperature and composition. Starting from the stoichiometric phases and random solutions, the complexity of the models increases tremendously when ordering tendencies or certain defects in the lattice of ionic crystals, such as vacancies and/or variable oxidation states have to be taken into account.

Abstract: A nano-sized CeO2 powder was synthesized by a modified glycine nitrate process (MGNP). The synthesized powder was characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), the Brunauer Emmett Teller (BET) method, and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The lattice parameter and crystallite size were determined by the Rietveld refinement of X-ray diffraction patterns. The shrinkage kinetics of the green body was continuously monitored in air and in oxygen atmospheres using a high temperature dilatometer up to 1500°C. During the high temperature sintering in air a redox reaction occurred (Ce4+ was partially reduced to Ce3+, and oxygen gas was released). The redox reaction influenced the sintering behaviour of CeO2, resulting in a decrease in density. On the basis of shrinkage kinetics data in oxygen atmosphere a master sintering curve for CeO2 was constructed. Using the concept of the master sintering curve, the densification behaviour in oxygen atmosphere was successfully predicted from early to final stages of sintering. During sintering of CeO2 at lower temperature in air atmosphere a significant contribution of the surface diffusion was observed.

Abstract: The stoichiometric compound Cu2PbO2 has been synthesized by solid-state reaction from Cu2O and PbO in a sealed quartz ampoule. The optimum synthesis conditions are 910 K and 260 h. The enthalpy of formation of Cu2PbO2 has been measured with the use of high-temperature calorimeter. The enthalpy of reaction Cu2O + PbO = Cu2PbO2 is – 25.4 ± 1 kJ·mol-1 at temperature 968 ± 5 K. Standard enthalpy and Gibbs energy of formation of the Cu2PbO2 compound from elements and its entropy at 298.15 K are DfH° = – 413.086 kJ·mol-1, DfG° = – 353.165 kJ·mol-1 and S° = 135.165 J·mol-1·K-1. The eutectic reaction L → Cu2O + PbO was found to occur at 1017 ± 5 K. Using the thermodynamic database for Cu-Pb-O system the revised Cu2O-PbO phase diagram is proposed.

Abstract: One of the methods for powder synthesis that is both cost and time effective is the selfpropagating room temperature synthesis. We applied this method to synthesize rare earth doped ceria nanopowders. Since they exhibit very high ionic conductivity at intermediate temperatures these compositions are attractive for a new generation of nanostructured ceramics applicable in solid oxide fuel cells as electrolytes. In this paper we paid our attention to the reaction based on methathetical pathway, whereby solid solution nanopowders of rare earth elements with ceria were obtained at room temperature. Compositions of Ce1-xRexO2-δ (Re = Y , Nd) were synthesized with x ranging from 0 to 0.20. The reaction course is discussed and the properties of the obtained powders are presented.
