Abstract

In the ceramics in series (1-õ) CaZrTi2O7 – x NdAlO3 and (1-õ) CaZrTi2O7 – x SmAlO3 (õ = 0.25, 0.5 and 0.75) produced by cold pressing and sintering at 1400, 1450 and 1500 0Ñ zirconolite was found to be a major phase, perovskite was an extra phase and traces of residual baddeleyite occurred. At x = 0.75 the perovskite was major phase and zirconolite and cubic oxide of fianite or tazheranite type were extra phases. Major Nd and Sm host phase at x = 0.25 was found to be zirconolite (about 65% of total Nd2O3 and 74% of total Sm2O3). With the x value increasing perovskite becomes major host phase for Nd and Sm accumulating of up to about 92% of total Nd and about 72% of total Sm. As follows from SEM/EDS data Nd and Sm contents in the zirconolite may reach ∼1 formula unit (fu).
