Additive controlled crystallization of barium titanate powders and their application for thin-film ceramic production: Part I. Powder Synthesis

  • B. Grohe (a1), G. Miehe (a2) and G. Wegner (a1)


Stoichiometric barium titanate (BaTiO3) was synthesized in aqueous solution with acetone and/or methanol as additives to control the crystallization process. Adjusted nano-sized particles and narrow particle size distributions were achieved at 60 °C with additive concentrations up to 243 ml/ l. The growth kinetics showed that the additives influence the nucleation of the BaTiO3 particles and tend to suppress Ostwald ripening.
