A modified lead titanate composition has been synthesized by two different chemical techniques. The influence of the powder processing methods and the calcination temperatures on the physical characteristics, e.g. surface area and phase compositions of the powders, has been investigated. Powders of the same composition have also been prepared by attrition milling the raw materials. Results of the preliminary investigations indicate that the above physical characteristics are strongly dependent on the powder processing methods and calcination temperatures.
