Abstract: Oxides of the formula Nd2Ba2CaCu2−xZnxTi3O14 (x=0.0, 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0) have been successfully prepared by high temperature ceramic route at 1025 °C, as well as by the low temperature citrate precursor route at 800 °C. The copper-rich compounds obtained by the ceramic route (x=0–1.0) are found to have a tetragonal structure, with the a and c parameters increasing with zinc substitution, from a=3.913(8) Å and c=19.63(1) Å for x=0, to a=3.925(1) Å and c=19.64(1) Å for x=1. The tetragonal distortion decreases with increase in zinc substitution and the oxides with x>1.5 were found to crystallize in the cubic structure with a=3.933(2) and a=3.937(1) Å for the x=1.5 and two compositions, respectively. The entire range of oxides (0≤x≤2) could be obtained as pure phases at 800 °C and crystallize in the cubic structure when prepared by the citrate precursor route. The room temperature dielectric constant () at 100 kHz varies from 8 for the pure Cu composition and increased to 59 for the pure Zn analog. The dielectric constant depends on the synthetic route—the pure Zn compound Nd2Ba2CaZn2Ti3O14 gave much lower dielectric constant () of 23 at 100 kHz when prepared by the citrate precursor method (=59, solid state route).
