Abstract

Since the volatilization of lead oxides is inevitable at high temperatures, the problems of maintaining stoichiometry and air pollution are of great concern in conventional synthesis of lead-barium titanate. We have demonstrated that the reaction between PbO, BaO and TiO2 could be greatly accelerated by using microwave energy. The synthesis of (PbxBa1-x)TiO3 can be completed in 10 minutes at about 750°C by microwave heating, while it takes at least 2 hours at 850°C in a conventional heating. The weight loss of PbO during microwave synthesis was much less than that in conventional synthesis. Thus the microwave synthesis technique may find wide applications for the preparation of various lead-containing materials in the production of electronic ceramics.
