Abstract

Zirconium oxide fine particles were synthesized by flame assisted spray pyrolysis using zirconium chloride solution as precursor. Propane gas and air were used as a fuel and an oxidizer, respectively. The ratio of flow rate of oxidizer and fuel was maintained constant at 10:1 to ensure a complete combustion. Increasing fuel flow rate led to the increase of temperature distribution in the flame reactor. The intensity of XRD patterns increased with temperature and precursor concentration. Phase composition of zirconium oxide produced by this process consisted of monoclinic and tetragonal phases. The volume fraction of monoclinic phase of zirconium oxide increased with temperature and precursor concentration. The morphology particles observed by SEM resulted in spherical particles with size in the submicron range depending on the precursor concentration.
