Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The organic-capped Ba-Ti-O nanolayers were coated uniformly on spherical Ni particles for multilayer ceramic capacitor (MLCC) applications via the formation of Ti-hydroxide nano-coating layers and their subsequent reaction with Ba-stearate at 180°C. The capping of organic shell on oxide coating layer changed the hydrophilic surface structure into hydrophobic one, which significantly improved the dispersion behavior in hydrophobic solvents such as terpineol and butanol. In addition, the uniform coating of Ba-Ti-O layer was advantageous to prevent Ni oxidation. This method provides a useful chemical route to fabricate organic-soluble Ba-Ti-O coated Ni particles for a highly integrated passive component.
