Chandran, Gopi R and Patil, KC (1993) Combustion synthesis, characterization, sintering and microstructure of cordierite. In: British Ceramic Transactions, 92 (6). pp. 239-245.Full text not available from this repository.
Cordierite powders have been obtained by the combustion of aluminum nitrate, magnesium nitrate, magnesium oxide, silica fume, ammonium nitrate, and urea mixtures. The thermal evolution of crystal phases has been studied using X-ray diffraction patterns and IR spectra. Magnesia derived cordierite attained 97% theoretically d. when sintered at 1450° for 2 h and its microstructure showed the presence of macropores. The microhardness and coefficient of thermal expansion (20-550°) of the sintered body were 8 GPa and 1.5 \times 10-6/degree, respectively.
