|Title:||Effect of Vibro-milling Time on Phase Transformation and Particle Size of Zirconia Nanopowders Derived from Dental Zirconia-based Pre-sinter Block Debris|
|Publisher:||Science Faculty of Chiang Mai University|
|Abstract:||Zirconia (ZrO2) nanopowders (with smallest size 35 nm) derived from recycling of dental ZrO2-based pre-sinter block debris were prepared by using a rapid vibro-milling technique. The detailed investigations considering the roles of vibro-milling times on crystal structure, particle size distribution and morphological evolution of the obtained powders were investigated by using a combination of X-ray diffraction (XRD), laser diffraction, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) techniques. In general, it has been found that the monoclinic- and the tetragonal-ZrO2 phases tend to form together. The increased milling time was found to play a significant role on broadening of particle size distribution together with fluctuation of ZrO2 particle size. Moreover, SEM results showed that these ZrO2 powders consist of a variety of agglomerated particle size, depending on their experienced vibro-milling times. In addition, TEM technique was also used to confirm the crystallographic phases of the ZrO2 nanoparticle supporting the XRD results. These findings revealed that a narrower particle size distribution of these ZrO2 nanopowders can be tailored by employing an appropriate choice of the milling time.|
