Abstract:We have investigated on the synthesis of Ba_1 − xSr_xTiO_3(BST, x = 0.0–1.0) solid solution at low temperature by a sol-gel method using precursor solutions of Ba(OC_2H_5)_2, Sr(OC_2H_5)_2, and Ti(OCH(CH_3)_2)_4 dissolved in 2-methoxyethanol. Crystalline BST solid solution monolithic gels were obtained as dried at 90°C. Crystalline fraction of BST gels increased with increasing concentration of the precursor solution and increasing amount of the hydrolysis water used. Ba_0.4Sr_0.6TiO_3 (x = 0.6) gels from a precursor solution of 0.5 mol/l with hydrolysis water of H_2O/Ti = 50 crystallized during aging at 30°C.
