Sinterability Enhancement by Collapse of Mesoporous Structure of SBA-15 in Fabrication of Highly Transparent Silica Glass
2015 (English)In: Journal of The American Ceramic Society, ISSN 0002-7820, E-ISSN 1551-2916, Vol. 98, no 4, 1056-1059 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Highly transparent silica glass was prepared from mesoporous silica SBA-15 powders at low temperature using Spark Plasma Sintering. It was found that the combined effect of pressure and temperature resulted in collapse of porous structure of SBA-15 and transformation to transparent glass. A sinterability enhancement mechanism involving generation of incremental surface area from pore collapse during sintering process was proposed to interpret the fully densification at low temperature.
