The nonhydrated PZT alkoxide was made as per Zhuang and the hydrated PZT alkoxide as per Zhuang and Leach. The nonlinear pyrolysis of the nonhydrated PZT alkoxide yielded 2-methoxyethanol, l-methoxy-2-propanol, and 1, 2-dimethoxyethane . The nonlinear pyrolysis of the hydrated PZT alkoxide yielded 2-methoxyethanol, 2-propanol and 2-propanone. The TGA study of the nonhydrated and hydrated PZT alkoxide showed that the optimal heating rate was 5°C per minute.
