Glass-ceramic based on compositions in the system Sr(Ba)–Al2O3–SiO2, modified by additions of zirconium oxide ZrO2 and hafnium oxide HfO2 with and without yttrium as a stabilizer, was synthesized by the sol-gel method. It was shown that the introduction of refractory oxides shortens the gelation time of the initial solutions, intensifies the sintering of the glass-ceramic, and changes the temperature intervals of phase formation processes and the nature of the precipitated crystalline phases. The sol-gel method made it possible to obtain a uniform distribution of the modifier-oxide grains in the bulk of the glass-ceramic. The yttrium oxide in the structure of the materials is concentrated near ZrO2 and HfO2 particles.
