Abstract Amorphous zirconia ceramics powders containing 3 and 6 mol% yttria were prepared by controlled hydrolysis of alkoxides. Characterization of these powders was carried away by Thermal Analysis, X-ray Diffraction, Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and Energy Dispersive X-ray Analysis (EDAX™). The calcination temperature was optimized for compaction at a temperature ranging from 500–800°C. 3% molar YSZ powders from alkoxide, that attained 98% of the theoretical bulk density, showed the best behaviour.
