The preparation of precursors of BaTiO3 nanopowders with various amounts of Ag by spray pyrolysis is reported. The precursor powders obtained with hollow and thin-wall particles are composed of uniformly dispersed Ba, Ti, and Ag components. After post-treatment and a simple milling process, the precursor powders, irrespective of the amount of Ag, are transformed into Ag-BaTiO3 composite nanoparticles. The mean particle size of the Ag (10mol%)-BaTiO3 powders is 142nm. BaTiO3 pellets containing Ag exhibit dense structures even at a low sintering temperature of 1000°C. BaTiO3 pellets with 10mol% Ag show the highest dielectric constant of 2950, as opposed to the pure BaTiO3 pellets (without Ag), whose dielectric constant is 1827.
