Synthesis of porous Cu–Sn using freeze-drying process of CuO–SnO2/camphene slurries

Synthesis of porous Cu–Sn using freeze-drying process of CuO–SnO2/camphene slurries Porous Cu–Sn with controlled pore characteristics was synthesized by a freeze-drying and sintering process.

Abstract

Porous Cu–Sn with controlled pore characteristics was synthesized by a freeze-drying and sintering process. CuO and SnO2 powders were selected as the source material, which are hydrogen-reduced to metallic Cu–Sn in the sintering stage. Camphene-based CuO–SnO2 slurries were prepared by milling at 60 °C with a small amount of dispersant. Freezing of a slurry was done at −40 °C with unidirectional control of the growth direction of the camphene. Pores were generated by sublimation of the camphene. The green bodies were sintered at 650 °C under a hydrogen atmosphere. The sintered bodies with Cu3Sn, Cu6Sn5 and β-Sn phases showed macroscopic aligned pores with an average size of 200 μm. The internal wall of the macroscopic pores is also porous, and there are a number of many small pores in it. The formation of macroscopic and microscopic pores was discussed in terms of solidification behavior of the liquid with foreign particles.
