Water-soluble amorphous alumina-based ceramic precursors and alumosols: Structural and chemical characterization.
Journal of Non-Crystalline Solids
1539 - 1551.
We examined the solid-state water-soluble amorphous precursors that are formed by partial thermal decomposition of Al(NO)·9HO (aluminum nitrate nonahydrate: ANN) using Raman and FTIR and solid-state magic-angle spinning NMR spectroscopy. We also studied the species formed in the aqueous alumosols formed by dissolution of the pre-ceramic precursors using Al NMR spectroscopy. Species identified in the alumosols included the Al(HO) monomer, the [AlOAl(OH)(HO)](Al) Keggin ion, and the Al polycation, [AlO(OH)(HO)], as well as various other oligomers or nanoparticles containing IV-, V- and VI-coordinated Al ions. © 2009 Elsevier B.V.
