Abstract:

The phase transformation mechanisms of zirconia nanocrystals obtained on thermal treatment of polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) and cetyltrimethylammoniumbromide (CTAB) capped hydrous amorphous zirconia (HAZ) on thermal treatment are investigated. In PVP assisted synthesis, tetragonal zirconia nanoparticles formation is the predominant one as compared to CTAB assisted synthesis. The decomposition of surfactants capped on HAZ with temperature (526°C for PVP and 466°C for CTAB) and subsequent interaction of the by-products with zirconia nanoparticles are responsible for tetragonal to monoclinic phase transformation. The decomposition temperature of capped surfactants is observed from thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and subsequent interaction of by-products with zirconia nanoparticles at different temperatures is investigated from FTIR spectra. Further the structure of nanoparticles annealed at different temperatures is investigated using XRD, micro Raman and photoluminescence (PL) analysis. Copyright © 2017 Inderscience Enterprises Ltd.
