Vanadium Carbide (VC) Nanopowder / Nanoparticles
Vanadium carbide, VC, is an extremely hard refractory ceramic material. It is used commercially in cutting tools. It has the appearance of a gray metallic powder with a cubic crystal structure. Vanadium carbide is chemically stable and has excellent properties at high temperatures. Can be used as an additive to the tungsten carbide to find carbide crystals to improve the cermet properties. The vanadium carbide can be formed in orientation (111) when formed by R.F. Magnetron Sputtering. Vanadium carbide: reticular constant of 4,182 angstroms, melting point 2800oC, 3900oC boiling point, good chemical stability, and high-temperature properties.
When isomorphic vanadium oxide, crystallizes in the rock salt structure. Since VC and VO are miscible, VC samples generally contain an impurity oxide. It is produced by heating vanadium oxides with carbon to about 1000 ° C. The vanadium carbide may be formed on the (111) orientation when formed from magnetron sputtering RF. Although VC is thermodynamically stable, it becomes V2C at higher temperatures.
Vanadium carbide is used as a tungsten carbide additive to define carbide crystals to improve cermet properties.
