The peroxo-oxalate complexation method is a method that can be used for the preparation of doped barium titanate. In this paper we focus on BaTi0.91Zr0.09O3, which can be used for discharge capacitors in lamp starters. The preparation method described here is based on the complexation and subsequent precipitation in basic environment of Ba, Ti, and Zr ions with hydrogen peroxide and oxalate. The influence of several process parameters, like precipitation temperature and pH, on powder properties is described. A single-phase perovskite crystal structure is obtained after calcination starting from a chloride precursor solution using a precipitation temperature of 40°C and a pH of 9. Because the peroxo-oxalate process starts with inexpensive chlorides and is performed in air, the peroxo-oxalate process is suitable for the commercial production of doped barium titanate.
