A new phase of cadmium titanate was prepared by hydrothermal method under low temperature of 120°C. The electron diffraction investigation showed that the structure of the new phase is hexagonal with lattice parameters a = b = 5.2099 Å and c = 4.6811 Å, which have been calibrated by its X-ray diffraction pattern. The X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy results suggested that the new phase can be described as CdTiO3. Furthermore, it was observed that the post-annealing at 700°C and 1050°C led to the transition of the new phase to the known ilmenite and then perovskite phase, respectively.
