The study of non-hydrolytic reactions for the synthesis of NASICON is reported. Different procedures have been considered, changing the precursors and their addition order, and varying the reaction solvent; dichloromethane, acetonitrile and tetrahydrofuran (THF). The most promising results in terms of homogeneous reactivity were obtained using PO(On-C4H9)3, Zr(Ot-C4H9)4, SiCl4 and Na(Ot-C4H9) in acetonitrile. The reactions were followed using heteronuclear Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy (13C, 31P). NASICON powders were prepared by the thermal decomposition of the gels between 900 and 1200°C. The powders were analyzed by XRD to check the formation of the NASICON phase.
