Abstract : The purpose of this project is to develop new or improved manufacturing methods for large scale production of ferroelectric or piezoelectric ceramic materials such as titanates, zirconates, niobates, and tantalates. A major requirement is high purity (99.95%). The accomplishments include the installation of pilot plant equipment, initial start-up procedures and chemicals for reaction, chemical analysis and x-ray techniques, and the investigation of a compatible barium zirconate technique. The synthesis of BaTiO3 in the pilot plant will be accomplished by the addition of triethanolamine titanate to a potassium hydroxide/barium chloride solution. Chelated esters of zirconium compounds are under investigation. (Author)
