Gallium oxide Inorganic compound Ga2O3 has the chemical formula. It is a semiconductor that has a large bandgap with Eg=4.9eV. It exhibits excellent electrical conductivity, light-emitting properties, and can be used to detect O2.

The Properties Of Gallium Oxide

Gallium oxide is composed of white triangular crystals. Although it is not soluble, it is easily soluble with alkali metal hydrides, dilute acids, and hot acid solutions.

Gallium trioxide (III oxide) is the most stable oxide of gallium. It can be made by heating metal gallium to oxidize or by calcining galium nitrates, gallium hydroxides, and certain gallium compound at 200-250degC.

Ga2O3 is capable of reacting with several metal oxides when heated. The crystal structure has been determined for gallate M(I),GaO2, obtained from alkali metaloxide reaction (above 400). The same as Al2O3 and Ln2O3, this material can be obtained by reaction of MgO with ZnO. CoO, NiO, and CuO Spinel Type M(II).

Preparation and Use of Gallium Oxide

1. Add a hot, aqueous NaHCO3 aqueous slurry to the hot, aqueous gallium trichloride solution GaCl3, and heat until all gallium hydroxides have precipitated. After washing the precipitate in hot water, calcinate it at 600degC until no Cl- remains. NH4Cl will react with Ga2O3 when it reaches 250degC, generating volatile GaCl3.

2. This is how you prepare high purity galium oxide. Use high-purity Ga metal as anode. Dissolve it in a H2SO4 solution of 5%-20%, add ammonia, cool and crystallize Ga (NH4)(SO4)2, before drying at 105degC. When there is excess oxygen in the air, burning at 800degC and for 2h will yield a 99.99%-99.9999% pure product.

3. The solution should be concentrated until it is close to crystallization. When this happens, the solution can be transferred to a large evaporating plate and dried. Burn the Ga(NO3)3 that has been evaporated in a muffle-furnace. The temperature must be maintained at 550°C for 5 hours. After cooling, the final product is removed to yield 1.2kg of highly pure gallium oxide.
