Article history: The aim of this study was to obtain thin zirconium dioxide coatings on structured reactors using the sono- Received 19 April 2017 chemical sol-gel method. The preparation method of metal oxide layers on metallic structures was based Received in revised form 10 July 2017 on the synergistic combination of three approaches: the application of ultrasonic irradiation during the Accepted 7 August 2017 synthesis of Zr sol-gel based on a precursor solution containing zirconium(IV) n-propoxide, the addition Available online 12 August 2017 of stabilszing agents, and the deposition of ZrO on the metallic structures using the dip-coating method. As a result, dense, uniform zirconium dioxide ﬁlms were obtained on the FeCrAlloy supports. The struc- Keywords: tured reactors were characterised by various physicochemical methods, such as BET, AFM, EDX, XRF, XRD, Sonochemistry XPS and in situ Raman spectroscopy. The results of the structural analysis by Raman and XPS spectroscopy Catalyst support conﬁrmed that the metallic surface was covered by a ZrO layer without any impurities. SEM/EDX map- ZrO ping revealed that the deposited ZrO covered the metallic support uniformly. The mechanical and high Sol–gel method 2 temperature tests showed that the developed ultrasound assisted sol-gel method is an efﬁcient
