By C. Jeffrey Brinker,George W. Scherer

Sol-Gel technology: The Physics and Chemistry of Sol-Gel Processing provides the actual and chemical rules of the sol-gel approach.

The publication emphasizes the technological know-how in the back of sol-gel processing with a bankruptcy dedicated to purposes. the 1st bankruptcy introduces easy terminology, presents a short old caricature, and identifies a few first-class texts for historical past studying. Chapters 2 and three talk about the mechanisms of hydrolysis and condensation for nonsilicate and silicate platforms. bankruptcy four offers with stabilization and gelation of sols. bankruptcy five reports theories of gelation and examines the anticipated and saw adjustments within the houses of a sol within the area of the gel element. bankruptcy 6 describes the alterations in constitution and houses that ensue in the course of getting older of a gel in its pore liquor (or another liquid). The dialogue of drying is split into elements, with the idea centred in bankruptcy 7 and the phenomenology in bankruptcy eight. The constitution of dried gels is explored in bankruptcy nine. bankruptcy 10 exhibits the potential for utilizing the gel as a substrate for chemical reactions or of editing the majority composition of the ensuing ceramic by way of appearing a floor response (such as nitridation) at the gel. bankruptcy eleven stories the idea and perform of sintering, describing the mechanisms that govern densification of amorphous and crystalline fabrics, and displaying some great benefits of warding off crystallization ahead of sintering is entire. The homes of gel-derived and traditional ceramics are mentioned in bankruptcy 12. The guidance of movies is such a major element of sol-gel expertise that the basics of movie formation are taken care of at size in bankruptcy thirteen. motion pictures and different purposes are in brief reviewed in bankruptcy 14.

Materials scientists and researchers within the box of sol-gel processing will locate the ebook invaluable.
