Aqueous solutions of lead chloride (PbCl2), zirconium oxychloride (ZrOCl2.8H(2)O) and titanium tetrachloride (TiCl4), in appropriate volumetric amounts, were used as the starting materials in the synthesis of phase-pure Pb(Zr0.52Ti0.48)O-3 powders. Preparation of the phase-pure PZT powders were achieved, in the presence of urea (CH4N2O), by the chemical powder synthesis route of homogeneous precipitation.
