Preparation of Barium Strontium Titanate Nanopowders by a Sol-Gel Hydrothermal Synthesis Method


Article Preview

Barium strontium titanate, BST (BaxSr1-xTiO3), nanoparticles were prepared by a sol-gel hydrothermal technique. BST powders of different composition (x=0.1, x=0.3, x= 0.5, x=0.7, x=0.9) prepared by sol-gel technique previously were treated by hydrothermal synthesis method later. XRD results indicated that the as-prepared perovskite BST nanoparticles have the accurate proportioning composition. These results showed that the combination of sol-gel and hydrothermal technique would become a potential and promising process for fabricating BST and other nanopowders.
