Data on synthesis, thermal behavior and thermodynamic properties for the NZP phosphates NaMe2(PO4)3 and Na5Me(PO4)3 (Me=Ti, Zr, Hf) are reported. The compounds were synthesized by sol-gel method and solid-state reactions and characterized by
X-ray powder diffraction, IR spectroscopy, electron microprobe and chemical analysis. Their thermal behavior was studied by
the DTA measurements. The heat capacities of the phosphates were measured between temperatures 7 and 650 K. The fractal dimensions
for the phosphates were calculated. The obtained thermodynamic characteristics of these phosphates and also literature data
for the compounds of NZP type structure are summarized.
Summary The thermodynamic data for NZP compounds MZr2(PO4)3 (M=Na, K, Rb, Cs, Zr0.25) and Na5D(PO4)3 (D=Ti, Zr) are reported. The heat capacities of the phosphates were measured between T=7 and T=640 K. The standard enthalpies entropies, and Gibbs functions of formation at T=298.15 K were derived. The obtained thermodynamic characteristics of phosphates of the NZP type structure and literature data are summarized. Thermodynamic functions of reactions of solid-state synthesis were calculated and the usability of ceramic technology for obtaining NZP compounds was proved.
