A series of TaO2.5-doped ZrO2 (1-x)ZrO2-xTaO(2.5) (x = 0.08, 0.15, 0.2 and 0.28) ceramics were synthesized by solid state reaction at 1600 degrees C for 20 h. XRD results reveal that no tetragonal ZrO2 phase forms in the TaO2.5-ZrO2 system. Instead, a mixture of monoclinic ZrO2 (m-ZrO2 ) and orthorhombic TaZr2.75O8 can be detected for (1-x)ZrO2-xTaO(2.5) ceramic within compositions x <= 0.2. As the doping content increases, the content of m-ZrO2 decreases and the final product in the composition of 0.72ZrO(2)-0.28TaO(2.5) is primarily composed of TaZr2.75O8. Microstructure together with the thermophysical and mechanical properties of TaZr2.75O8 ceramic were investigated for possible applications as thermal barrier coatings (TBC5). The thermal conductivity with a minimum value of 1.65 W/m.K at 800 degrees C for TaZr(2.75)O(8)( )ceramic is similar to 30% lower than that of dense YSZ and the dense ceramic also has a moderate average thermal expansion coefficient (TEC), about 9.14 x 10(-6) K-1 from room temperature (RT) to 1300 degrees C. Besides, TaZr2.75O8 exhibits a high microhardness (11.85 +/- 0.42 GPa) and fracture toughness (3.15 MPa.m(1/2)). These preliminary results indicate that TaZr2.75O8 can be used as an alternative material for the ceramic layer in TBCs system with respect to its superior thermal and mechanical properties.
