L3xLa2/3-XTiO3 Nanoparticles Obtained from a Low Temperature Synthesis Route
In this work, the synthesis of Li3xLa2/3-xTiO3 oxide is studied by thermal decomposition of citrate precursor at very low temperature which has not been yet reported in the literature for these compounds. The characterization of oxides and its precursor was realized by DRX, IR, ATD and TEM techniques. The results show the formation of a new chemical compound (precursor) as well as several advantages of the citrate method in relation to reported ones in the literature: the ostensible decreasing of temperature Li3xLa2/3-xTiO3 formation and the decreasing of particle size on the nanometric scale which is very desirable for the electrochemical application.
