  • Boehmite (AlOOH) nanoparticles have been synthesized in subcritical (300 bar, 350 C) and supercritical (300 bar, 400 C) water. The formation and growth of AlOOH nanoparticles were studied in situ by small- and wide-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS and WAXS) using 80 keV synchrotron radiation. The SAXS/WAXS data were measured simultaneously with a time resolution greater than 10 s and revealed the initial nucleation of amorphous particles takes place within 10 s with subsequent crystallization after 30 s. No diffraction signals were observed from Al(OH){sub 3} within the time resolution of the experiment, which shows that the dehydration step of themore » reaction is fast and the hydrolysis step rate-determining. The sizes of the crystalline particles were determined as a function of time. The overall size evolution patterns are similar in sub- and supercritical water, but the growth is faster and the final particle size larger under supercritical conditions. After approximately 5 min, the rate of particle growth decreases in both sub- and supercritical water. Heating of the boehmite nanoparticle suspension allowed an in situ X-ray investigation of the phase transformation of boehmite to aluminium oxide. Under the wet conditions used in this work, the transition starts at 530 C and gives a two-phase product of hydrated and non-hydrated aluminium oxide.« less
  • A FTIR spectrum is used to study the formation characteristics of aluminium titanate precursor gel under the influence of temperature. From an analysis of the spectra of the gel heated at different temperatures in the 30-1400{degrees}C range, it is found that both octahedral and tetrahedral Al-O coordinations are present up to 800{degrees}C. At temperatures above 800{degrees}C, the tetrahedral Al-O coordination decreases and becomes negligible at 1050{degrees}C. {alpha}- alumina and rutile phases are formed at 1000{degrees}C and the aluminium titanate phase is formed at 1300{degrees}C. The Al-O coordination in aluminium titanate is found to be octahedral.
  • Pyranine (8-hydroxy-1,3,6-trisulfonated pyrene) was used as an in situ fluorescence probe to monitor the chemical evolution during sol-gel thin film deposition of silica by the dip-coating process. The sensitivity of pyranine luminescence to protonation/deprotonation effects was used to quantify changes in the water/alcohol ratio in real time as the substrate was withdrawn from the sol reservoir. The spatially resolved spectral results showed that preferential evaporation of alcohol occurred, and that the solvent composition in the vicinity of the drying line reached values in excess of 80 vol% water. Correlation of the luminescence results with the interference pattern of the depositingmore » film allowed the solvent composition to be mapped as a function of film thickness.« less
