Combustion Synthesis of Calcium Zirconate Ceramic Nano Powders - Their Structural and Morphological Studies

Author(s): Parashurama L, and Anusuya Devia VS

The present paper gives a brief insight of preparation of calcium zirconate (CaZrO3 ) dense ceramic nanopowders by simple solution combustion method using urea as a fuel. The prepared material was characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM) and energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDX). XRD data clearly shows the crystallization of the CaO-ZrO2 Nano Powders and the formation of calcium zirconate solid solutions in the wt % ranging from 2-10 wt%. From the SEM data of the material (with different concentration of CaO) it was evident that, in all the samples the particles are agglomerated and showed irregular morphology.
