Abstract: . In the present work we used the sol-gel process to prepare Y2SiO5 precursor sols suitable for electrophoretic deposition (EPD). The sol synthesis was performed through the controlled hydrolysis of alkoxide solutions of tetraethoxysilane and yttriumoxoisopropoxide. During sol development emphasis was put on characterization of particles size and zeta potential of the formed aggregates. We succeeded in synthesizing a clear sol containing polymeric aggregates with acceptable particle charge. The electrophoretic…
