Chemical Vapor Deposition of Group IVB, VB, and VIB Elements, a Literature Review.
The Bureau of Mines reviewed the chemical vapor deposition (cvd) literature of the group IVB, VB, and VIB elements. This review was utilized in the Bureau's research to provide erosion-, abrasion-, and corrosion-resistant coatings for valve components used in coal gasification units. This report attempts to bring together the many cvd references that have been published since 1966. Each of the group IVB, VB, and VIB metal coatings were reviewed, and some of their preparation methods, uses, and properties are given. A total of 160 references were found for the nine elements. Isotope separation, stronger steels, solar absorbers, alloys, superconductors, optical fibers, and coatings to increase the life of materials are some of the new uses for cvd. The work upon which this report is based was done under an interagency agreement between the U.S. Energy Research and Development Administration (now the Department of Energy) and the Bureau of Mines.
