ZrO2 powders from zirconium (IV) carboxylates.
J Met 1987 Jul; 39(7):34-37
This report describes the process by which zirconia powders can be produced by the hydrolysis of carboxylate solutions, which are readily prepared by solvent extraction. Polymeric, partially hydrolyzed zirconium carboxylate complexes develop during k2so4 or water treatment at 200 deg. C. Pure zr solutions also give limited precipitation at 200 deg c, and extensive, rapid precipitation results when carboxylate solutions containing polymeric species were contacted with dilute hcl.
