      The advantages of a new semi-wet method for the synthesis of (Ba, Ca)TiO3 and YBa2Cu3O7 − y powders from precursor carbonates are described. The precursor carbonates are prepared using chemical coprecipitation technique under controlled pH conditions to ensure uniform distribution of Ba+2/Ca+2 and Y+3/Ba+2 ions. It is shown that the powders synthesized by this route possess better chemical homogeneity as compared to those obtained by the conventional ceramic technique involving calcination of a mixture of BaCO3, CaCO3, TiO2 and Y2O3, BaCO3, CuO powders. The behaviour of the ferroelectric (Ba, Ca)TiO3 and the superconducting YBa2Cu3O7 − y ceramics prepared from powders obtained by our method are found to be markedly different from those known for the conventionally prepared ceramics.
