The synthesis of new compounds based on Bi2O3 is investigated because they can be used as new ecological inorganic pigments. Chemical compounds of the (Bi2O3)1−x(Y2O3)x type were synthesized. The host lattice of these pigments is Bi2O3 that is doped by Y3+ ions. The incorporation of doped ions provides the interesting colours and contributes to a growth of the thermal stability of these compounds. The simultaneous TG-DTA measurements were used for determination of the temperature region of the pigment formation and thermal stability of pigments. This paper also contains the results of the pigment characterization by X-ray powder diffraction and their colour properties.
