“Diopside Porcelain Tile”
Porcelain tile with high physical and
mechanical properties were produced by the substitution of synthetic
diopside for feldspar and quartz sand in the traditional plastic clay,
kaolin, feldspar and quartz sand mixture.

“Improving Kiln Furniture Refractories”
Various properties of silicon carbide, cordierite and mullite materials used for kiln furniture manufacture have been improved.
MgCO3 additive has only a slight influence on open porosity but significant effect on pore-size distribution, average pore size and crushing strength of mullite ceramics made from Al(OH)3 and kaolinite gangue.

“Preparation and Application of Perovskite-Type Oxides to Atmospheric-Pressure Ammonia Synthesis”
Perovskite-type oxides BaCe0.90Y0.10O3-δ and Ba0.90La0.10Ce0.90Y0.10O3-δ were prepared, characterized and used as solid electrolytes to successfully synthesize ammonia from nitrogen and hydrogen at atmospheric pressure.
