 Preparation and Characterization of Organic-inorganic Hybrid Composite Film with Plate-shaped Alumina by Electrophoretic Deposition as a Function of Aging Time of Sol-Gel Binder Doo Hwan Kim, Hee Jeong Park, Jinsub Choi1, Hyung Mi Lim Eco-Composite Materials Team, Energy and Environment Division Korea Institute of Ceramic Engineering and Technology1Department of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Inha University ABSTRACT Sol-gel binder was prepared by hydrolysis and condensation reaction using boehmite sol and methyltrimethoxysilane as a function of aging-time. The coating slurry was composed of a plate-shape alumina in the sol-gel binder for the EPD process, in which particles dispersed in the slurry were deposited on the electrode under an electric field due to the surface charge. We studied the effects of three parameters: the content of boehmite, the aging time, and the applied voltage, on the physical, thermal, and electrical properties of the hybrid composite films by EPD. The amount of boehmite was 10 ~ 20 wt% and the aging time was 0.5 ~ 72, with a fixed amount of plate-shape alumina of 10 wt%. The condition of applied voltage was 5 ~ 30 V with a distance of 2 cm between the electrode during the EPD process. We confirmed that a structure of hybrid composite films of well-ordered plate alumina was deposited on the substrate when the film was prepared using a sol-gel binder composed of 15 wt% boehmite with 1 hr aging time and EPD at 10 V. The process shows a weight loss of 7% at $500^{circ}C$ in TGA and a breakdown voltage of 8 kV at $87{mu}m$.
