    ABSTRACT: We have examined the possibility of preparing submicron aluminum nitride particles by combustion synthesis. We have used a new approach based on aluminum combustion in thin films and proposed a mechanism of the formation of submicron aluminum nitride particles in the combustion regime. Aluminum nitride powders have been obtained up to 13 m2/g in specific surface area. The particle size, morphology, and chemical composition of the synthesis products have been determined. It has been shown that, using the self-propagating high-temperature synthesis, one can synthesize aluminum nitride particles less than 500 nm in diameter.

    ABSTRACT: We have synthesized sorbents based on Silokhrom S-120 silica gel grafted with Ni2+, Co2+, and Cu2+ acetylacetonate layers. Using pH measurements and a Hammett indicator method, we have studied the acid-base properties and composition of donor-acceptor centers on silica gel surfaces before and after modification. We have determined chromatographic retention parameters for test compounds and evaluated the polarity and selectivity of the sorbents. Modification with acetylacetone chelates has been shown to increase the surface acidity of Silokhrom S-120, leading to changes in various types of intermolecular interaction.

    ABSTRACT: This paper presents measured emission spectra of opal photonic crystals filled with rare-earth phosphors. We obtained photoluminescence spectra of the (111) growth surface of an opal photonic crystal whose pores were filled with sols containing nanoparticles of rare-earth compounds (Eu3+ and Tb3+) in amounts within 30 ppm. Ultraviolet excitation was provided by light emitting diodes operating at wavelengths of 366, 382, and 410 nm and by the fourth harmonic of a Nd:YAG solid state laser (λ = 266 nm). The obtained results lead us to conclude that the lasing threshold can be lowered for transitions of the rare-earth ions. Under illumination with narrow-band light sources, we observed electromagnetic radiation conversion to the band gap region of the photonic crystal. Opal photonic crystals filled with rare-earth ions are potentially attractive for improving solar cell efficiency.

    ABSTRACT: The molar heat capacity of SmVO4 has been determined by differential scanning calorimetry in the temperature range 369–1020 K. The experimental data have been used to evaluate the thermodynamic properties of the oxide compound. The structure of SmVO4 has been determined at 298 and 973 K.

    ABSTRACT: This paper presents thermodynamic modeling results for the magnesium reduction of the MgTa2O6, Mg4Ta2O9, and LiTaO3 tantalates. We have calculated the temperature-dependent heat capacity of the tantalates and determined the adiabatic temperature as a function of initial reactant temperature for reduction reactions in the MgTa2O6-5Mg, Mg4Ta2O9-5Mg, 2LiTaO3-5Mg, and 2LiTaO3-6Mg systems and the equilibrium phase composition of these systems.

    ABSTRACT: Composites based on titanium(IV) and nickel(II) oxides have been synthesized and investigated in a wide composition range: 0.5–60 wt % Ni. We have analyzed the effect of synthesis conditions on the phase composition and texture of the composites, some of which contain mesopores, consist of nanoparticles, and offer photocatalytic activity in the visible range.

    ABSTRACT: Cleaved surfaces of TlGaSe2〈Dy〉 layered crystals have been characterized by X-ray diffraction and scanning probe microscopy, using 2D and 3D imaging. We have detected growth steps and nanostructures along the c axis. It seems likely that the anomalous physical properties of Tl-In-Ga-Se alloys are due in some measure to Dy- and DyGa2-based interlayer nanodefects.

    ABSTRACT: Impurity distributions across a magnesium condensate produced by sublimation have been determined experimentally. For most of the impurities, the distributions have a complex shape. The Mn and Ca distributions can be described by a distillation equation. The total impurity concentration in the magnesium condensate increases with increasing distance from the substrate. The average total content of all the impurities detected in the condensate is a factor of 3 lower and that of four specially monitored impurities (Fe, Ni, Cu, and Si) is almost a factor of 4 lower than the corresponding original level.

    ABSTRACT: We have studied reactions of the Y2Fe alloy with hydrogen at 100°C and lower temperatures and with ammonia at temperatures from 100 to 500°C. We have determined the composition of the reaction products and identified conditions for obtaining the YFe2H3.6 hydride and those of its decomposition in ammonia, resulting in the formation of yttrium and iron nitrides.

    ABSTRACT: The formation mechanism of the monoclinic ZrO2 phase at high temperature in the case of the contact between YSZ and CuO, which prevents the manufacturing of the copper-based anodes for solid oxide fuel cells has been studied. Based on the XRD and thermo-gravimetric data the following mechanism of the phase transformation, occurring in CuO-YSZ system, is proposed. At the temperatures higher than 900°C the oxygen ion is transferred from CuO to the oxygen vacancy of YSZ surface that leads to the yttrium migration inward the lattice. According to the phase diagram of YSZ, the monoclinic ZrO2 phase is formed in the region where the stabilizing additive is deficient. Based on the proposed mechanism it is suggested that the monoclinic phase should not be formed in the Cu2O-YSZ mixture in an inert atmosphere due to the higher bond energy between oxygen and copper in Cu2O in comparison with CuO.
