Zirconium-Aluminum-Hydride Nanoparticles

Zirconium-Aluminum-Hydride Nanoparticles

Ratings: (0)|Views: 30 |Likes:
The Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) has eliminated the formation of aluminum oxide coating, the impediment associated with burn kinetics for metal-Al Hydride nano-scale particles. NRL Investigators have developed a method for producing stabilized Zr-Al Hydride nano-scale particles with carbohydrate based gel coatings that are air stable. Synthesis of surface passivated Zr-Al mixed metal-hydride nanoparticles was accomplished via a multi-step process under inert atmosphere conditions, which involved a sonochemically-mediated decomposition of a pre-synthesized zirconium-aluminum-hydride precursor. The particles were surface passivated using carbohydrates and were shown to be stable in air and partially stable in water. Some of the possible applications for this nanopowder material are as an energetic additive or a metallization agent for energetic mixtures, solid fuel, and other applications.
