Abstract : Research is being conducted to develop new or improved manufacturing methods for large scale production of ferroelectric and piezoelectric ceramic materials such as titanates, zirconates, niobates and tantalates. A major requirement is high purity (99.95%). Synthesis of barium niobate by a direct metathetical reaction and by the oxalate method was accomplished. The resulting products were verified by X-ray diffraction studies and chemically analyzed for purity. Barium zirconate was successfully prepared by the oxalate method; a suitable metathetical reaction is being sought. (Author)
