Reactive YBa2Cu3O7-δ powders have been produced via freeze-drying, carbonate- and oxalate-coprecipitating methods. In the coprecipitating methods, sodium carbonate and sodium oxalate were used as precipitants. These powders were characterized by TGA, XRD, and SEM. The morphologies of the YBa2Cu3O7-δ powders produced from these methods are different from each other. The influence of hot-press process on the bulk density, micro-structure development and superconducting properties of YBa2Cu3O7-δ samples was also studied.
