Abstract

Stoichiometric mullite (71.38 wt% Al2O3‐28.17 wt% SiO2) and 80 wt% Al2O3‐20 wt% SiO2 gels were prepared by the single‐phase and/or diphasic routes. Dense sintered bodies were prepared from both sets of gels in the Al2O3‐SiO2 system. Apparent densities of 96% and 97% of theoretical density were measured for the diphasic (using two sols) mullite samples sintered at 1200° and 1300°C for 100 min, respectively; this compared with 85% and 94% for the single‐phase xerogels under the same conditions, and to much lower values for mullite prepared from conventional mixed powders. The microstructure of the mullite pellets from diphasic xerogel precursors is also considerably finer.
