Polycrystalline samples of Ba3NaRNb10O30 (R = La and Sm) have been prepared by high temperature solid-state reaction method. The X-ray powder diffraction technique has been used to test the formation of the compounds. Lattice parameters, space groups and basic structures of the compounds have been obtained from X-ray data. The dielectric constant has been measured as a function of frequency (100 Hz–10 kHz) and temperature (−180 to 200°C) to understand transition mechanism in these ferroelectric compounds.

Polycrystalline samples of Pb(Mg1/4Zn1/4Nb1/2)O11/4 have been synthesized by high temperature columbite precursor solid state reaction technique. Using X-ray diffraction (XRD) technique, compound formation in single phase cubic structure was observed and XRD analysis provided preliminary structural data. Detailed studies of dielectric properties of the compound reveal that this compound has high dielectric constant and diffuse phase transition in a wide range of temperatures around the Curie temperature. The charge deficiency of the compound presumably gets compensated in the high temperature columbite precursor process of sample preparation which is supported by single phasic form of the material.
