Procedures and techniques for the synthesis of metal alkoxides of zirconium and hafnium are described. Sufficient quantities of principally zirconium isopropoxide and tetra-tert butoxide were produced to use as a starting material for impregnation and coating purposes. The zirconium-isopropoxide compound has exhibited excellent properties for coating applications. While the compound may be applicable to coating various materials, experiments have been limited to coating graphite. The compound was pyrolyzed at 250 - 500 C. Tetragonalmonoclinic thin film ZrO2 was deposited on graphite of various grades.
