  • Zirconium silicate, also zirconium orthosilicate, (ZrSiO4) is a chemical compound, a silicate of zirconium.
  • Zirconium silicate is usually colorless, but impurities induce various colorations.
  • It is insoluble in water, acids, alkali and aqua regia.
  • Zirconium silicate occurs in nature as mineral zircon.
  • Zircon is a mineral belonging to the group of nesosilicates. Its chemical name is zirconium silicate and its corresponding chemical
    formula is ZrSiO4.
  • Zircon is a transparent, translucent, or opaque mineral, composed chiefly of zirconium silicate, ZrSiO4, and crystallizes in the tetragonal system.
  • Zirconium silicate can be made by fusion of SiO2 and ZrO2 in an arc furnace, or by reacting a zirconium salt with sodium silicate in an
    aqueous solution.
  • Selective Laser Sintering of zirconium silicate as a ceramic material used for investment casting shells and cores is an attractive alternative to the conventional, time-consuming way of producing these shells from a wax master.
  • Zirconium silicate has recently attracted increasing interest due to its outstanding properties as a gate dielectric.
  • It is thermally stable with Si and a good barrier against oxygen diffusion.
  • Zirconium silicate thin films have been deposited by sputtering and atomic layer deposition ALD.
  • Optimization of the ALD process to deposit zirconium silicate films was demonstrated with a precursor combination of ZrCl4 and TBOS.
  • Zirconium silicate (ZrSiO4) is one of the most important compounds obtained from zircon sands; baddeleyite is a natural form of zirconia (ZrO2).
  • Zirconium silicate sands are produced by different branches of industry for several applications in the ceramic industry.
  • This production can be made by different milling processes: dry milling and wet milling.
  • Polyelectrolyte allows formation of flocs for the separation of zirconium silicate solids from the water.
  • Zirconium silicate is used for manufacturing refractory materials for applications where resistance to corrosion by alkali materials is
  • Thin films of zirconium silicate and hafnium silicate produced by chemical vapor deposition, most often MOCVD, can be used as a
    high-k dielectric as a replacement for silicon dioxide in semiconductors.
  • Zirconium Silicate is also used in production of some ceramics, enamels, and ceramic glazes.
  • Zircon is recovered from heavy mineral sands and is used largely for its thermal properties in the fields of ceramics refractories and foundry uses.
  • At present, Australia, South Africa, United States, Ukraine, India, China, Brazil and Sri Lanka are the largest exporters of zirconium minerals, in 1992 they supplied about 99% of the world production.
  • In Italy, zirconium minerals are widely used and most of the national demand, currently estimated at around 60 - 65 ktons, goes into the ceramics market.
  • The zirconium minerals are used in the Italian ceramic industry for the production of ceramic colours, glazes, tiles and sanitary and table ware.
  • Some experimental tests were carried out in a pilot-plant scale in order to assess the viability of different membrane processes in the treatment of the effluent from a zirconium silicate production industry.
  • Zirconium Silicate is reported by Kleber and Putt (1986) as
    being used in chewing gum and in a dental prophylaxis paste.
  • The zirconium-silicate mineral zircon is produced as a coproduct from the mining and processing of heavy minerals.
  • Zirconium and hafnium metal were produced from zircon by two domestic producers, one in Oregon and the other in Utah.
  • Eudialyte and gittinsite are zirconium silicate minerals that have a potential for zirconia production. Identified world resources of zircon exceed 60 million tons.
  • First principles density functional theory calculations are carried out to investigate the scaling trends
    of band offsets at model silicon/zirconium silicate interfaces.
  • Zircon, zirconium silicate ZrSiO4 is a natural mineral used various applications as a refractory bulk material. It is an excellent feedstock for the plasma spraying of protective coatings and free-standing bodies.
  • Zirconium silicate is found in nature associated with acidic igneous rocks, from which zircon sand form through weathering.
  • Australia is the world’s largest producer of zircon (zirconium silicate—ZrSiO4), chiefly in the form of heavy mineral sands.
