|Abstract:||Lead magnesium niobate powders were prepared by reacting PbO, MgO and Nb2O5 in the molten salt of potassium chlorate. The formation of a single phase perovskite PMN requires a combination of 100 mol % excess lead oxide and a reaction temperature of 900°C. The average particle size of resulting PMN powders increases with increasing reaction temperature and the amount of excess lead oxide added, while the particles undergo a change from a round to a cubical morphology. Too much excess PbO (> 100 mol %) in the starting composition promoted grain growth in the molten salt-derived PMN ceramics, although the sintered density is not much affected at 1200°C and above. It also degrades the dielectric properties of sintered PMN, as a result of the occurrence of PbO-rich precipitates at the grain boundaries and grain junctions. © 1998 Elsevier Science S.A.|
