Growth of Sr2Nb2O7 particle size in KCl melts occurs by reaction on insoluble Nb2O5 particles in the melt. Thus, Sr2Nb2O7 size is controlled by the initial size of the reactants. By altering the reactant composition to include larger Nb-rich reactants such as SrNb2O6, 5-30 μm, anisotropic Sr2Nb2O7 particles are formed.
