Materials with A(2)B(2)O(7) (pyrochlore) structure have received significant attention for their applications as new protonic conductors and materials used in electronic devices. One of the unique synthesis routes for La2Zr2O7 (pyrochlore) powders is the glycine-nitrate combustion method, which shows superior properties of the synthesised powder using glycine as a complexing agent. The Sr doped La2Zr2O7 powders in pure pyrochlore structure were produced using this approach. Selected characteristics of the synthesised powders, such as crystal structure, lattice parameters, crystallite size, the vibrational properties, the morphology of the particles, along with the specific surface area and particle size, have been investigated. The dependence of some properties on annealing temperatures of the powders has been studied.
