Cadmium meta- and orthostannate were synthesized by thermal treatment using the coprecipitation method. Tin (IV) chloride, cadmium acetate were used as the initial components, the ammonium carbonate was a precipitant. The coprecipitated compounds and the thermolysis products were analyzed by TGA/DSC methods, the thermal treatment samples were studied by XRD and SEM. The formation of proper products in soft thermal treatment conditions was confirmed. The stannates formation in terms of submicron sized particles was observed by microscopial investigation.
