Small-angle neutron-scattering study of nanophase zirconia in a reverse micelle synthesis.

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Nanophase zirconia particles are synthesized by mixing two reverse micelle solutions containing the precursor salt ZrOCl{sub 2} and the base NH{sub 4}OH. The primary reverse micelle solution consists of AOT, toluene and water. The reverse micelle structure of four solutions as a function of w (the molar ratio of [water]/[AOT]) is characterized by small-angle neutron scattering at room temperature. With the addition of ZrOCl{sub 2} and NH{sub 4}OH into the water pools, the reverse micelle sizes decrease as compared to those in the D{sub 2}O/AOT/C{sub 6}D{sub 5}CD{sub 3} primary system. The mixed microemulsions contain reverse micelle sizes that fail between ... continued below

The mixed microemulsions contain reverse micelle sizes that fail between the values of the pre-mixed solutions. All the reverse micelles exhibit uniform size and spherical shape. The effect of concentration of inorganic salt precursor in the water pools on the reverse micelle structure is also studied.
