Solution Combustion Synthesis Of Iron Oxyborate (Fe3Bo6)
In this study, iron oxyborate (Fe3BO6 was synthesized through the solution combustion method as a potential anode material for lithium-ion batteries. Urea, glycine, citric acid, carbohydrazide, hexamethylene tetramine, and starch were used as fuel sources and the effects of the fuels were investigated. The obtained materials were structurally characterized by FT-IR, powder-XRD, solid UV-Vis, TGA and VSM. The pure crystalline Fe3BO6 was synthesized at low temperature and short reaction time using glycine-assisted solution combustion method. It was thermally stable up to 945 °C with a non-uniform morphology and a highly porous structure. The magnetic properties were also studied and Fe3BO6 shows antiferromagnetic behavior. © 2019, Turkish Chemical Society. All rights reserved.
