This paper reports on the results concerning the sol-gel preparation and characterization of Sr-substituted perovskite lanthanum cobaltates La1−xSrxCoO3−δ (x = 0.0, 0.25, 0.5 and 0.75). The metal ions, generated by dissolving starting materials in diluted acetic acid were complexed by 1,2-ethanediol to obtain the precursors for the non-substituted and Sr-substituted LaCoO3. The influence of the synthesis temperature, heating time and the amount of substituent on the phase purity of La1−xSrxCoO3−δ were investigated. The phase transformations, composition and micro-structural features in the gels and polycrystalline samples were studied by thermal analysis (TG/DTA), infrared spectroscopy (IR), powder X-ray diffraction analysis (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). <alternatives> [...] </alternatives>
