Preparation and characterization of monodispersed spherical Fe2O3@SiO2 reddish pigments with core–shell structure
- 29 Downloads
The α-Fe2O3@SiO2 reddish pigments with core–shell structure were successfully prepared by hydrothermal and Stöber methods. The structure, morphology, and chromaticity of the synthesized pigments were characterized by XRD, SEM, TEM, FTIR, XPS, and colorimetry. The results indicated that the as-prepared pigments have the characteristics of narrow particle size distribution, high dispersion, and good sphericity. The α-Fe2O3@SiO2 reddish pigments were uniform and well dispersed in solution. In addition, the pigments with different shell thickness were also prepared, and the effect of shell thickness on the color performance of the pigments was discussed.
