This review deals with the solution-sol-gel processing (SSG) of powders such as BaTiO3, MgTiO3, PbTiO3, Bi4Ti3O12, La2Ti2O7, Pb(Zr0.52Ti0.48)O3, Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O3 and Ba(Mg1/3Ta2/3)O3. Fine powders of good sinterability can be easily obtained at low temperatures although the process can be expensive and time consuming. We propose a nanocomposite route which utilizes nanophases of different components as a cost-effective alternative to sol-gel process for powder preparation.
