The ceramic compositions Ba3−xSrxLiM3Ti5O21[M=Nb and Ta, x = 0 to 3] were prepared through conventional solid state ceramic route. A detailed study has been carried out to correlate the structure of Ba3−xSrxLiM3Ti5O21[M=Nb and Ta, x = 0 to 3] with respect to their dielectric properties. The structure and microstructure of ceramic samples were studied using powder X-ray diffractometer and Scanning Electron Microscopic techniques. The dielectric properties of the sintered ceramic compacts have been studied. The Ba-rich compositions were identified as promising candidates for high frequency applications whereas the Sr-rich compositions were excellent ionic conductors and can be commercially exploited for applications in solid-state batteries.
