An organic zirconium complex was synthesized from concentrated ZrOCl2 solution and an organic complex which was a mixture of β-glycosyl urea (Schiff’s base) and urea. Homogeneous hydrolysis and controlled polymerization of zirconium-tetramers was accomplished by heating the solution to boiling. Fine ZrO2 and yttrium- or magnesium-stabilized ZrO2 powders were prepared by dehydration and pyrolisis in air. The powders obtained are composed of 0.1 µm particles and were sintered to an above 98… CONTINUE READING
