Li6Y(BO3)3 and Li6Gd(BO3)3 powders were synthesized using wet chemical method. Lithium-nitrate, yttrium-/gadolinium-nitrate and boric acid solutions were mixed in stoichiometric composition, and a colloidal precipitate was obtained by adjusting the pH of the mixture. Li6Y(BO3)3/Li6Gd(BO3)3 phase formation was achieved by annealing the precursors in the 650-700 °C temperature range. The reaction steps were monitored by FTIR- and Ramanspectroscopy, and the final products were characterized by X-ray powder diffraction and scanning electron microscope. XRD assessment shows that we obtained LYBO/LGBO as dominant phases after a 24 h treatment at 650 °C.
