 저온 균일침전법으로 $TiOCl_2$ 수용액에서 얻은 $TiO_2$ 초미분체의 형성기구 김선재, 이희균, 박순동, 전치중, 이창규, 김흥회, 이은구1 한국원자력연구소 원자력재료기술개발팀1조선대학교 재료공학과(BK21 Team) Formation Mechanism of Ultrafine $TiO_2$ Powders from Aqueous $TiOCl_2$ Solution by Homogeneous Precipitation Process at Low Temperature ABSTRACT The TiO2 powder with the values of the large specific surface area more than 150$m^2$/g has been prepared with the homogeneous precipitation process below 5$0^{circ}C$ and its formation mechanism was investigated using the SEM, TEM and Raman Spectroscopy. With the spontaneous hydrolysis of aqueous TiOCl2 solutions, all the precipitates were fully and homogeneously crystallized with the rutile TiO2 phase simply by heating, which as transformed to the anatase TiO2 phase as increasing the addition of SO42- ions to the aqueous TiOCl2 solution. The precipitates were formed with spherical secondary particles which consisted of acicular, spherical and mixed primary particles corresponding to the rutile, anatase and mixed phases, respectively. It can be thought that the formation and phase determination of crystalline TiO2 powders even at ambient temperature would be related with the existence of the capillary force. This force might be varied depending on the shape change of the primary particles. Key words: Homogeneous precipitation process, $TiO_2$, Rutile, Anatase, Capillary force
