Low-temperature synthesis and characterization of the Mn–Zn ferrite

Nanocrystalline ferrite with the composition: Mn0.6Zn0.4Fe2O4 was synthesized by two-stage route: the precipitation of Zn, Mn and Fe hydroxides from sulphates solution and the synthesis of a precursor by the sol–gel auto-combustion method. The ferrite powder obtained from the gel by ashing was sintered under air at a temperature of 720, 1150 and 1300 °C. The composition and morphology of the as-obtained phases were examined by ICP-AES, TG/DTA, XRD, FTIR, SEM and low-temperature nitrogen adsorption (BET). It was found that the spinel phase forms after gel combustion. The nanometric ferrite powder obtained as a result of the combustion is soft-agglomerated. The zinc content in the ferrite during ashing and auto-combustion is lower by about 21 mol% than the assumed one and the final product turn out to be Mn0.68Zn0.32Fe2O4.

    Investigation of thermal decomposition kinetics of taurine

    The non-isothermal thermal decomposition of taurine was investigated by means of thermogravimetric analysis (TG) and differential thermal analysis (DTA). The experimental data were treated using Flynn–Wall–Ozawa, Doyle, Kissinger, and Šatava–Šesták methods, respectively. The results show th ... more

    Thermodynamic analysis of the hydrogen peroxide decomposition parameters

    This paper discusses the estimation of the decomposition parameters of the liquid–gas-steam system, which is produced by the hydrogen peroxide decomposition at isobar conditions. The thermodynamic analysis calculates the two critical concentrations, which mark the phase transitions of the s ... more
