Uniform inorganic carboxyhydrosols containing titanium or strontium and titanium cations were precipitated from isopropyl alcohol solutions by the controlled hydrolysis of metal alkoxycarboxylate precursors. The hydrolysis of various triisopropoxytitanium carboxylate compounds yielded the capability to control particle size. Spherical particles of carboxyhydrosols were prepared in mean sizes from 0.4 to 2.9 μm. Controlled hydrolysis of quintaisopropoxystrontium titanium octanoate resulted in slightly agglomerated, uniform 1‐μm spheres in a solvent medium in which controlled precipitation of uniform powders was not previously possible. Conversion of the hydrous oxide carboxylate precipitate to the oxide via calcination or hydrothermal treatment was possible.
