Abstract. Lead-free ferroelectric materials derived from BaTiO3, SrTiO3 and CaZrO3 were synthetized by the solid state reaction. Effects of ionic substitutions in A cationic sites between Ba, Ca and Sr and in B cationic sites between Ti and Zr on structural and dielectric properties were investigated. Structure and morphology of all the ceramics were determined by X-ray diffraction and SEM. Dielectric measurements were investigated in the temperature range from 80 K to 800 K and in frequency from 100 Hz to 1.8 GHz. Dielectric permittivity shows a good stability over all the frequency range for BTO, BCT, BZT, SCT and CZT ceramics. Barium substitution by Ca and Zr decreases the dielectric permittivity and moreover reduces the loss tangent over 1MHz by a factor of 10 compared to BTO
