Ball-milling of mixed gel derived from a simple mixing of component alkoxides increased the compositional microhomogeneity, judged quantitatively by high-resolution microprobe chemical analysis. At the same time, the particle size of PbTiO3 obtained after calcination at 1023 K for 2 hr in air decreased, approaching those of oxide fine particles delivered from a bidentate alkoxide through an identical thermal treatment.
