ZrTiO4 powder are synthesized by a modified sol-gel route via bimetallic diethanol amine complex of zirconium and titanium alkoxides. Samples are cured at 140 degrees C and calcined between 500-800 degrees C. Powders are characterized with XRD, TGA, DTA, SEM and TEM methods. The ZrTiO4 powders are obtained at 650 degrees C from the amorphous form. No identified peaks can be attibuted to other phases, namely, zirconia and titania are not observed.
