Using two-step particle-coating method, pyrochlore-free Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O3 (PMN) powders have been successfully synthesized by a single calcination step at a relatively lower calcined temperature of 850°C. The XRD and EDS results confirmed that the Mg-citric acid polymeric complex coatings effectively prevent direct contact between PbO and Nb2O5 and thus avoid the formation of pyrochlore phase. The coated powders were calcined directly without the ball-milling procedure at 850°C. The pyrochlore-free PMN powders obtained showed uniform and even grain size. The results showed that this method is an attractive method for the synthesis of PMN-based composite powders.
