Mechanochemical and subsequent heating processes to produce SrVO3 are studied, starting from a mixture of Sr(OH)2 and VmOn (2/5 ≦ m/n ≦2/3) by milling and heating in an ambient or reducing atmosphere. Single phase perovskite SrVO3 was obtained by firing the milled mixtures at 1300°C under reducing atmosphere with four dehydration steps via two intermediates, Sr2V2O7 and Sr8V8O25. The fourth dehydration step, corresponding to transformation of Sr8V8O25 to SrVO3, appears at around 1100°C by heating mixtures containing trivalent vanadium and milled in a reducing atmosphere. Dehydration of the mixtures was promoted by milling under N2-4% H2, due to reduction of precursors by hydrogen. The precursor from the mixture with III-V mixed-valent vanadium milled under N2-4% H2 is closer to the final product SrVO3 than any other precursors.
