The influence of the pore network geometry and interparticle long-distance electric coupling on the ferroelectric phase transition in small particles embedded into mesoporous matrices is considered. It was shown that the temperature of the ferroelectric phase transition in a system of electrically linked particles can be well different from that in isolated small particles. In particular, the model suggests an explanation for the weakening of size-effects on the ferroelectric phase transition in confined geometry.
