|Abstract:||The role of Sr/Ca ratio, which was varied from 3/6 to 9/0, on the structure, crystallization behavior and properties of diopside-based glass and glass-ceramic sealants targeted to solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) applications was evaluated. The structural changes undergone by glass-powder compacts during isothermal heat treatment at 850 degrees C for 1-1000 h were investigated using XRD (X-ray diffraction) analysis, including quantitative Rietveld refinement, and MAS-NMR (magic angle spinning nuclear magnetic resonance) techniques. The tendency towards crystallization was retarded with increasing Sr/Ca ratio. Diopside-based phases, strontium akermanite and magnesium silicate were developed under various heat-treatment conditions. MAS-NMR analysis of glasses heat treated for 1000 h revealed that with increasing Sr/Ca ratio, Q(1) and Q(4) structural units were formed at the expenses of Q(2) units. The good thermal stability and chemical compatibility of the new glass-ceramic compositions coupled with their mechanical reliability and high electrical resistivity make them attractive for further experimentation as sealants for SOFCs.
