Abstract

Solid state metathesis reactions between lithium containing rocksalt metal oxides and appropriate lanthanum/ alkaline earth metal oxychloride/chloride provide a convenient route for the synthesis of several perovskite oxides of current interest, such as $LaCoO_3, LaMnO_3, AMnO_3$ and $ATiO_3 (A ~ Ca, Sr, Ba).$ Similarly, metathesis reactions between $Li_2TiO_3/Li_2ZrO_3$ and $PbSO_4$ (instead of $PbCl_2$) yield $PbTiO_3, PbZrO_3$ and $PbZr_{1-x}Ti_xO_3$ perovskites. $BaPbO_3$ and superconducting $BaPb_{0.75}Bi_{0.25}O_3$ could also be synthesized by the metathesis reaction between $Li_2PbO_3/Li_2(Pb,Bi)O_3$ and $Ba(OH)_2.8H_2O.$ Uniformly in all cases, the perovskite oxides were obtained in the form of loosely connected submicron sized particles at considerably lower temperatures than those usually employed for their synthesis by ceramic methods.
