Various parameters such as gel composition, aging, organic additive, and heating method affected the preferred orientation of nearly cubic PZT particles that were prepared by hydrothermal methods using TiCl3 as a Ti 3+ source, at relatively low temperatures of 100-140 °C. The newly found synthetic conditions could be used to develop specially orientated PZT particles, which may be useful in growing oriented films, for example, by electrophoretic deposition.
