Cerium oxide has been investigated to be an effective coating material for high temperature applications for various alumina- and chromia-forming alloys. The present study investigates the use of microemulsion method to obtain monodispersed, non-agglomerated nanocrystalline ceria particles in the range of 5 nm using sodium bis(2-ethylhexyl) sulphosuccinate (AOT) as a surfactant. Furthermore, the use of non-agglomerated nanocrystalline ceria particles to develop improved high temperature oxidation resistant coatings on AISI 304-grade stainless steel was investigated. It was found that non-agglomerated nanocrystalline ceria particles were more effective in improving the oxidation resistance than the agglomerated nanocrystalline particles.
