Complex lithium metallates Li2 Me x Zr1 − x O3 − δ (Me = Nb, Ti, x = 0.05, 0.1) with iso-and heterovalent substitutions for Zr4+ ions in lithium zirconate are synthesized for the first time using a citrate technique. The inclusion of Ti4+ and Nb5+ ions in the crystal structure of Li2ZrO3 is confirmed by means of X-ray diffraction and NMR. It is shown that in the temperature range of 750–820 K, Li2Ti0.1Zr0.9O3 solid solution has higher conductivity than phases of undoped lithium zirconate.
