The aim of this chapter is the review of various synthesis methods for the preparation of zirconia-based nanostructure for thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) application. To this end, the main materials used in TBCs, including metal oxide (M) stabilized zirconia (M = MgO, CaO, Y2O3, CeO2, Sc2O3), codoped-zirconia, rare earth-doped zirconiate (REZ) and zirconia--alumina nanocomposite, were reviewed and easy scales up route for the synthesis of them were studied.
