The [NZP] family has been attracting considerable attention because of its potential in thermal shock-resistant applications. The compounds M′Ti2P3O12 (M″=Li, Na, K, Cs) and M″Ti4P6O24 (M″=Mg, Ca, Sr, Ba) belong to this new family of low-expansion materials. The results of a systematic study undertaken to investigate the thermal expansion behaviour of these materials are reported. A correlation between the ionic size and lattice expansion was also attempted, and compounds possessing lowest bulk thermal and low anisotropy were identified.
