The formation of metastable t-ZrO/sub 2/ by thermal treatment was studied in a systematic way on two different samples: a gel (G) and zirconyl acetate (A). The results show that initially nucleation of t-ZrO/sub 2/ is favored by creation of anionic vacancies with trapped electrons. At higher temperatures the electronic defects disappear, the crystallites grow, and the m-phase can nucleate. This evolution is observed perfectly on sample A because of its special morphological characteristics.
