      Abstract: Mechanochemical processing has been   demonstrated as a powerful tool for preparing metastable phases.   In this work we have successfully applied it to synthesize a   novel Bi6Ti5WO22 phase belonging to the Bi2O3–TiO2–WO3 ternary   system. Attempts to obtain this phase by a solid state reaction   method as well as by chemical precipitation have failed,   confirming that cubic Bi6Ti5WO22 shows a metastable nature. The   employ of high-energy milling allows a reduction in both the   calcination temperature and time required to obtain a crystalline   sample (thereby reducing the Bi-losses by vaporization). As a   consequence a pure Bi6Ti5WO22 phase has been prepared which   remains stable up to temperatures around 800 ºC.
