The investigations of the synthesis and characterization of BaTiO3 powders described herein are motivated by the need to obtain ceramics with rather high 16 dielectric constants (E> 5000) following sintering at low temperatures (< 1000°C). These investigations have focused on chemical studies of the synthesis of BaTiO3 materials using the various solid-state reactions and the oxalate precursor method. In this work, a range of chemical characterization methods have been used in order to obtain a better understanding of the intermediates in these syntheses and the various reaction mechanisms.
