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… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
