Several new Na, Y and Zr substituted derivatives of Ca0·5Ti2(PO4)3 (CTP) have been synthesized. These derivatives retain the hexagonal structure of the parent (CTP) compound with minor changes in lattice parameters. Linear thermal expansion coefficients(α) have been obtained using a high sensitivity dilatometer.
