Topic: Yttria

In the News (Mon 18 Jun 18)

  Yttrium - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Potentially, yttrium can be used in ceramic and glass formulas, since yttrium oxide has a high melting point and imparts shock resistance and low thermal expansion characteristics to glass.
In 1843, a Swedish chemist by the name of Carl Mosander was able to show that yttria could be divided into the oxides (or earths) of three different elements.
"Yttria" was the name used for the most basic one and the others were named erbia and terbia.

 Scandia-and-Yttria-Stabilized Zirconia for Thermal Barriers
The longevity of such a coating depends upon yttria as a stabilizing additive that helps to maintain the zirconia in an yttria-rich, so-called "non-transformable" tetragonal crystallographic phase, thus preventing transformation to the monoclinic phase with an associated deleterious volume change.
Of particular interest are scandia-and-yttria-stabilized zirconia (SYSZ) compositions of about 6 mole percent scandia and 1 mole percent yttria, which have been found to exhibit remarkable phase stability at a temperature of 1,400 °C in simple aging tests.
3.7 mole percent scandia and 3.0mole percent yttria.

 Yttria Coated Mass Spectrometer Filaments
Yttria and Thoria were electrophoretically deposited on the filament wires to a thickness of 0.0005".
The Yttria coated filament (Filament #2) operated at measured filament voltage of 1.455 volts, which is about 70% of the voltage requirements for the non Yttria coated filament.
Yttria coated filaments require less power than uncoated filaments and the filament operates at lower temperature to achieve the same emission as the uncoated filaments.

 Scandia, yttria-stabilized zirconia for ultra-high temperature thermal barrier coatings - Patent 6044830
In describing the amounts of scandia and yttria in the thermal barrier coating, it is helpful, for comparison purposes, to give the relative amounts of scandia and yttria in the coating by expressing the amount of yttria or the amount of scandia as a percentage (by mole) of combined amount of scandia and yttria.
Then, the combined amount of scandia and yttria is expressed as a percentage (by mole) of the total composition of the coating (that is, of the combined amount of scandia, yttria and zirconia).
Alternatively, the scandia, yttria- stabilized zirconia ceramic may be formed by combining acid solutions of scandia and yttria, (for example, scandia and yttria dissolved in HCI), with a zirconia salt (for example, ZrOCl.sub.2), neutralizing the solution (with, for example, NH.sub.4 OH) to precipitate the mixed oxide ceramic precursor and then recovering the precipitate.

 Transparent yttria ceramics and method for producing same - Patent 4147744
A process as defined in claim 1 wherein the lanthana and yttria precursors are selected from the group consisting of co-precipitated oxalates, carbonates, hydroxides, and organic carboxylates.
The transparent yttria doped with lanthana in accordance with the present invention can be obtained by combining lanthana with yttria in a concentration of from about 6 to 14 mole ercent and preferably from about 8 to about 11 mole percent.
For example, instead of dissolving the oxides of yttria and lanthana and co-precipitating to obtain the solid solution, yttria and lanthana or precursors of these compounds can be admixed by blending the dry powders.

 39 Yttrium
They were all obtained, however, by elaborate and laborious fractionation of two mixtures, the "yttria" of Gadolin and the "ceria" of Klaproth, Berzelius, and Hisinger, originally believed by their discoverers to be pure oxides.
In the decades after Antoine Lavoisier developed the new chemistry built on the concept that earths could be reduced to their elements, the discovery of a new earth (with name ending in "a") was regarded as equivalent to discovering the element within.
However, yttria was in fact it was a mixture of a number of metal oxides.

 MicroXRD YSZ Coating
Redistribution of yttria in the coating from the tetragonal (t) phase to a low-yttria monoclinic (m) phase and a high-yttria cubic (c) phase is thought to contribute to the failure.
The lattice parameters of each phase are used to track the redistribution of yttria, but the challenging nature of the analysis raises doubts as to the accuracy of the results.
Results and Future Plans: The distribution of yttria and the resulting phase compositions are dependent upon the choice of feedstock powders used in the preparation of the coatings.
