Sol-gel method is gaining importance in the field of electronic ceramic materials. It is important to study the structure of the gels before processing to final product. Lead-, magnesium-, niobium- and titanium-containing gels of different composition have been prepared and characterized by TEM. The TEM study revealed that the as-prepared gels have a coarse texture and showed some crystallites of a few nanometer in size. Analyses by EDS and SAEDP indicated that phase separation exists on a very fine scale.
