Oxidation Behavior of Zirconium Diboride Nanoparticles

Oxidation Behavior of Zirconium Diboride Nanoparticles The products of oxidation of ZrB2 powders with average particle sizes of ~100 and ~30 nm by atmospheric oxygen under isothermal conditions and during heating have been characterized by thermal analysis, X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, IR frustrated total internal reflection spectroscopy, energy dispersive X-ray analysis, and elemental analysis. The oxidation onset has been observed at 594 and 396°C, respectively. Oxidation at temperatures of ≥800°C leads to the formation of boron oxide and monoclinic ZrO2, independent of the particle size of ZrB2. The reaction rate constants for the oxidation of ZrB2 nanoparticles ~100 and ~30 nm in size have been determined to be 0.03, 0.15, and 0.31 h–1 at 600, 650, and 700°C and 0.11, 0.35, and 0.81 h–1 at 500, 600, and 700°C, respectively. The apparent activation energies for the oxidation of the ZrB2 nanoparticles ~100 and ~30 nm in size are 161 ± 4 and 62 ± 3 kJ/mol, respectively, as evaluated from the temperature dependence of the rate constants at the above temperatures. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Inorganic Materials Springer Journals

Abstract

The products of oxidation of ZrB2 powders with average particle sizes of ~100 and ~30 nm by atmospheric oxygen under isothermal conditions and during heating have been characterized by thermal analysis, X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, IR frustrated total internal reflection spectroscopy, energy dispersive X-ray analysis, and elemental analysis. The oxidation onset has been observed at 594 and 396°C, respectively. Oxidation at temperatures of ≥800°C leads to the formation of boron oxide and monoclinic ZrO2, independent of the particle size of ZrB2. The reaction rate constants for the oxidation of ZrB2 nanoparticles ~100 and ~30 nm in size have been determined to be 0.03, 0.15, and 0.31 h–1 at 600, 650, and 700°C and 0.11, 0.35, and 0.81 h–1 at 500, 600, and 700°C, respectively. The apparent activation energies for the oxidation of the ZrB2 nanoparticles ~100 and ~30 nm in size are 161 ± 4 and 62 ± 3 kJ/mol, respectively, as evaluated from the temperature dependence of the rate constants at the above temperatures.
