TECHNOLOGY OF PREPARATION OF BARIUM AND MAGNESIUM HYDROXIDE NANODISPERSION AND POSSIBILITIES OF THEIR USE IN MONUMENT CARE
Keywords:magnesium, barium, hydroxide, nanodispersion, cultural heritage, preservation, consolidation
AbstractAn application of hydroxide nanoparticles in preservation of cultural heritage attracted great interest. The nanodispersions of calcium, magnesium or barium hydroxides exhibit high performance in consolidation abilities. In this work we focused on preparation of magnesium and barium hydroxide nanoparticles. For the synthetic procedure we used acetate precursors and sodium hydroxide. Obtained particles were dispersed in 2-propanol. Hydroxide nanoparticles were characterized by powder X-Ray diffraction, infrared spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy. It was observed that smaller particles were achieved in case of magnesium hydroxide. Presented work demonstrates that this reaction procedure can be applied for preparation of materials used in cultural heritage preservation.
