A high-pressure microwave reactor was used to study the hydrothermal synthesis of zirconia powders doped with 1 mol % Pr.The synthesis was performed in the pressure range from 2 to 8MPa corresponding to a temperature range from 215◦C to 305◦C.This technology permits a synthesis of nanopowders in short time not limited by thermal inertia of the vessel. Microwave heatingpermits to avoid contact of the reactants with heating elements, and is thus particularly well suited for synthesis of dopednanopowders in high purity conditions. A mixture of ZrO2 particles with tetragonal and monoclinic crystalline phases, about15nm in size, was obtained. The p/T threshold of about 5-6MPa/265–280◦C was necessary to obtain good quality of zirconiapowder. A new method for quantitative description of grain-size distribution was applied, which is based on analysis of the finestructure of the X-ray diffraction line profiles. It permitted to follow separately the effect of synthesis conditions on the grain-size distribution of the monoclinic and tetragonal phases.
