The possibility of producing ceramic powders suitable for the fabrication of microporous filters was investigated through the thermal treatment of the powder mixtures of a high-purity (99.09% SiO2) quartz and clinoptilolite type of natural zeolite. The quartz and zeolite, mixed in the ratio of 3:1 by weight, was wet ground in a ball mill, the powder was sieved on a 90-mum screen, and the undersize was dried and sintered in the powder form at the temperatures of 1000, 1100 and 1200degreesC for 7 h in an air furnace. The powder sinter products were deagglomerated by gentle crushing in an agate mortar and then characterized by phase composition, density, and specific surface area measurements. The added zeolite facilitated the transformation of quartz to cristobalite. The phase transformation of quartz to cristobalite first appeared at around 1000 degreesC, and, at 1200 degreesC, led to a ceramic powder sufficiently high in cristobalite content for the fabrication of the microporous ceramic bodies. Re-sintering at 1200 degreesC of the pressed forms of the ceramic powder resulted in microporous (0.5-3 mum) ceramics with a high porosity of 48.5%, and a three-point bend strength of similar to140 kg/cm(2). The ceramics obtained may have potential for filter applications. (C) 2003 Elsevier Ltd and Techna S.r.l. All rights reserved.


Production and properties of tooth-colored yttria stabilized zirconia ceramics for dental applications
Kaplan, Melis; PARK, JONGEE; Kim, Soo Young; Öztürk, Abdullah (Elsevier BV, 2018-02-01)
Dense zirconia stabilized with 3 mol% yttria ceramics were produced in disc shape by first cold isostatically pressing at 100 MPa and then sintering at 1450 degrees C at ambient laboratory conditions. Coloring was accomplished by immersion the discs in NiCl2, MoCl3, and NiCl2 + MoCl3 solutions for 5, 30, and 60 s. Different concentrations (0.1, 0.25, and 0.5 wt%) were applied to get the color of natural tooth. The density, color, microhardness, fracture toughness, compressive strength, and wear rate of the ...
Production and properties of phase separated porous glass
Ertus, E. Burak; Vakifahmetoglu, Cekdar; Öztürk, Abdullah (Elsevier BV, 2020-03-01)
A sodium borosilicate glass (SBG) was produced by conventional melt-quenching. As cast glass was heat treated to induce phase separation (SBG-HT), followed by acid leaching with HCl to dissolve one of the separated phases; i.e. alkali rich borate phase, so that a porous glass (PG) was obtained. In order to alter the pore structure, produced PG was subsequently alkali (NaOH) leached or alternatively heat treated. The samples were characterized by techniques including XRD, SEM, N-2 adsorption/desorption. The ...
Characterization by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy of hydroxyapatite co-doped with zinc and fluoride
Uysal, I.; Severcan, F.; Evis, Zafer (Elsevier BV, 2013-09-01)
Pure and Zn2+ and/or F- doped hydroxyapatite (HA) were synthesized by the precipitation method and detection of ion incorporations into the HA structure was investigated by a non invasive Fourier transform infrared (FAR) spectroscopic technique. The synthesized materials were sintered at 1100 degrees C for 1 h. The Zn2+ addition amount was kept constant at 2 mol% whereas F- amount was changed. The weight fractions of the HA and CaO were calculated by Rietveld analysis by using GSAS. Co-doping of Zn2+ and F-...
Fabrication and characterization of porous tricalcium phosphate ceramics
Koc, N; Timucin, M; Korkusuz, Feza (Elsevier BV, 2004-01-01)
Preforms of beta tricalcium phosphate (beta-TCP) ceramics were produced by using a modified slip casting technique. The slip was prepared by suspending custom-made TCP powder and PMMA beads in an aqueous medium stabilized with an acrylic deflocculant. Porous TCP ceramics were obtained by sintering the polymer-free preforms for 2 h at 1000 degreesC. The XRD pattern for the TCP ceramic indicated that the product was essentially pure beta-TCP. SEM examination of pore size and pore size distribution revealed th...
Characterization and Electrical Conductivity of Poly(ethylene glycol)/Polyacrylonitrile/Multiwalled Carbon Nanotube Composites
Aqeel, Salem M.; Kucukyavuz, Zuhal (Wiley, 2011-01-05)
Polymer blends based on poly(ethylene glycol), polyacrylonitrile, and multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) were prepared by the solvent cast technique from the dispersion of the MWNTs in the concentration range 0-3.45 wt %. The interaction of the MWNTs with the polymer blend was confirmed by a Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy study. The thermal properties of the polymer blend with the MWNTs were carried out by means of differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). It was evident from DSC that the p...
