Bi5Ti3FeO15 (BTF) is an example of bifferoic Aurivillius phase with perovskite layered structure. Materials on the basis BTF are of substantial interest for new types of magnetoelectric device applications. In this review we discuss technology of preparation biferroic ceramic with composition Bi5Ti3FeO15. The ferroelectric layered Bi5Ti3FeO15 (BTF) Aurivillius phases were synthesized by solid-phase synthesis reaction from the conventional mixture of oxides, viz. Bi2O3, Fe2O3, TiO2. Thermal analysis and mass change efect were used to investigate synthesis effects in the stoichiometric mixture of powders. The crystalline structure was checked by X-ray diffraction method at room temperature. Microstructure was investigated by scanning electron microscopy.
