N2 - Mesoporous yttria stabilized zirconia (YSZ) membranes can be used as supports for ultrathin dense ceramic or metallic membranes, and for ultrafiltration (UF) applications in harsh environments. This paper reports synthesis and characterization of sol-gel derived UF YSZ membranes. 0.25 M zirconia sol was prepared by hydrolysis and condensation of zirconium n-propoxide. A solution-sol mixing method was used to dope 8 mol% yttria in zirconia. Supported YSZ membranes were prepared by dip-coating the yttrium doped zirconia sol on the porous α-alumina substrate, followed by drying and calcining under controlled conditions. The membranes prepared in this study are of cubic fluorite phase. Helium permeation experiments show that the supported membranes are pin-hole (or crack) free. The 5 time dip-coated membrane determined by SEM micrograph is about 3.5 μm in thickness, with an average pore diameter of 3 nm.

T1 - Sol-Gel Synthesis and Characterization of Magnesium Silicate Thin Films

A nonhydrolytic sol−gel reaction between titanium(IV) isopropoxide and oleic acid at 270 °C generated 3.4 nm (diameter) × 38 nm (length) sized TiO2 nanocrystals.

The alkoxide sol−gel synthesis of nanostructured TiO2 has been studied systematically to examine the processing parameters that control crystallite size and phase. Nonagglomerated, ultrafine anatase particles have been generated by hydrothermally treating the sol−gel-derived hydrous oxides. The degree of crystallinity and purity of the synthesized materials could affect their structural evolution during heat treatment. It was found that the 10-nm anatase TiO2 sample derived by hydrothermal processing at 180 °C underwent neither phase change nor significant grain growth up to 800 °C. Nanocrystalline rutile TiO2 particles have also been attained via hydrothermal treatment in an acidic medium. They possessed an ultrafine rutile grain size and a high surface area, which could not be achieved via phase transformation from thermal treatment of anatase particles.

Sonochemical Effects on Sol-Gel Processes - Hielscher

Organic-Inorganic materials Since 1980, a new family of gels, named hybrids, has been studied. Thanks to the wide potentialities of organic chemistry, it was possible to synthesize suitable chemical precursors which consist of inorganic and organic groups. According to the morphology of the starting molecule (like hyper-branched precursors) or the nature of some bonds (hydrophobic Si-CH3 or Si-H groups), it is possible to build up a network with controlled pore size. Moreover Si-R groups lead to more compliant xerogels. During drying the shrinkage of the network is of great extent and stresses which act on the solid part are lowered. Finally a nearly fully dense xerogel is obtained. The pore size decreases and reaches low values. The material is transparent and has properties close to those of glass. Accordingly, the diffusion of oxygen molecules is very low. Consequently specific organic molecules may be incorporated to this matrix.
By changing the nature of R, it is possible to control the interaction between the xerogel matrix which plays the role of a host material and the optically active molecules embedded in such a transparent matrix. The field of optically organic molecules covers a lot of applications. These new hybrid xerogels show very attractive applications (tunable lasers using dye molecules, photochromism using spiropyrane molecules...).

Synthesis of silica nanoparticles by sol-gel

AB - Eu3+-doped LaOF oxyfluoride thin films were prepared by the sol-gel method using trifluoroacetic acid as the fluorine source. The photoluminescent properties of the films depended on the heating temperature as well as the Eu3+ concentration. The optimum concentration of Eu3+ for the strong visible emission at 611 nm was shown to be 10 mol%.
