Phosphosilicate molecular precursor for the synthesis of NASICON, natrium super ionic conductor,13; Na1+xZr2SixP3-xO12 (x ) 1 and 2) has been devised and prepared by the hydrolysis of tetraethoxysilane13; (TEOS) employing sodium phosphate solution. The molecular precursor was reacted with Zr(OC3H7)4 in13; ethanol under solvolytic condition to yield nano precursor material of NASICON. This material was13; annealed at high temperature to yield phase-pure NASICON. The molecular precursor was characterized13; using 31P NMR, FTIR spectral data, powder XRD pattern and TG/DTA studies. The structure of the13; molecular precursor was deduced from the powder XRD data, which indicates the presence of edge13; sharing tetrahedral arrangement of -O-Si-O-P-O-Si- chain. The NASICON precursor material13; was characterized using TG/DTA, FTIR, TEM, SEM, MAS 31P NMR and XRD. The conductivity of the13; synthesized NASICON material was measured using the pellet annealed at 900 xB0;C and was found to be13; 5.5 x10-3 S cm-1. The details on the preliminary investigation are presented in this paper.
